Looking for our GL door accessories

Post  yoogix on Tue Jun 15, 2010 11:32 pm

Hello guys, I've been looking for a kind of door guard accessory for my GL. If you would notice on our GL's door handle, there is an inward gap to allow our hands to slip in and operate the door handle to get in the car. Overtime, mine has a lot of scratches on that gap from fingernails. I was wondering if you know any type of door handle guard of some sort that we can stick in there, be it plastic, synthetic leather or chrome? I inquired at Nissan Westgate Alabang and they do not have that kind of accessory.

Another part I am looking for is the door sill. I inquired this on Nissan Westgate Alabang, they have individual polycarbonate/plastic sills for 2,500 pesos each. Another option is the multi-led kicking plate which includes four door sills with colored led for 9,500 pesos. It seems to me to be expensive for such purpose. Any other recommendations or ideas where we could get these parts of different brand at a lower cost?

For the meantime, I am thinking and scouting a good 3m tape (anti-slip) and see if they would look good on GL Smile I have not done this yet though as it may do more damage than good to our GL. Cheers and more power to LOOP.

hi sir, have the same problem also with regards to the door handle. i haven't seen that kind of accessory for our GL as well. for the door sills naman, i made a DIY using 3m anti slip which was posted at tsikot. i'll try to post it here when i have the time. it looks good naman (for me, hehehe) and also serves its purpose.

For a more subtle look, I think the transparent kitchen tape will protect that area from scratches. This is the same clear tape being used by bikers to protect the brand on their cranks and frames. HTH

Thank you for the inputs aln and EuroFD. I might try the 3m Anti-Slip tapes as a door sills. For the door handles, the kitchen tapes or magic tapes will definetly do. Now I have something to keep me busy this comming weekend. This would suffice until GL accessories becomes more common. I really appreciate your inputs guys. As soon as I have installed the tapes, will post some pics here so you can see how it turns out.

Cheers Very Happy

merong stock ng chrome door handle guard ang Gallery Ortigas. dont know how much. honestly, im not a fan of it. but i see your point in avoiding scratches. i think though mas prone sa scratches yung back door/hatch.
