Car's getting there. Keep it up

Quesion: did you frankenstein your door handles with the chrome ones? Or are they just covers? (If so, mind sharing where you picked them up?)

Those are actually covers and they were on my white gs when I bought them. From the previous owner of my white gs he said he ordered them from Japan. They compliment my chrome wheels very good.
I already have real jdm visors getting them color matched before I install they came off my gs as well.

Nothing too exciting, now I'm focusing on basic maintenance since I had to wait till I could get my car in the shop. However I did install my visors. Color matching was a pain since I don't know the current color code.
