I got the billet door locks installed today! The precess is pretty easy and only takes about 10 mins.
The stock locks. Long ugly black plastic that makes it uncomfortable to lean over the door or rest your arm directly to the side.
They unscrew right off with the help of some pliers and a rag.
Gently stick a screwdriver under the bezel and pry it up. This was the hardest part.
New vs. Old
I had to shave the hole slightly to get the new bezels in.
After a slight shave they squeezed right in.
I originally ordered the stripped ones because I liked the look of them more, but then found out they do not sit as low and flush as the plain ones. So I ordered a set of the plain ones because I wanted them to sit flush when locked. Once I got them both I realized that they are the same size the only difference being that the stripped ones were not threaded all the way up like the plain ones are. I popped the plain ones on for now, but I plan to tap the striped ones up farther so I can use them instead.
Once the new post was threaded on.
I like everything about these new locks except it might be too much bling
I am going to look into getting them anodized either blue or graphite. I will probably leave the bezels how they are.
Here is how they sit unlocked:
My arm is rejoicing and thanking me for a pain free future!!!
