New door handles/locks for the beetle

The bug already had handled but they were missing gaskets and more importantly keys. These were pretty cheap on jbugs and picked up a set with gaskets.

Install was extremely simple, a single screw on the jam on the door under the weather trim. Once the screw is out you just slide it out.

The gaskets were a bit disappointing, they are hard plastic and not formed well enough to fit nicely around the base of the handles. Once you cinch the handle down its not too bad. If I still had the originals I probably would be using them again.

Handles themselves work great! There wasnt any adjusting needed and im pretty happy with them.
