It’s easy enough to either cut down the longer shaft out to weld a extension onto the shorter shaft if that’s what you need.

I'm told convertible doors are thicker so they need a longer shaft. But the outside handle is the same across the open and closed cars.Getting the short shaft out of the handle is an issue but a good TIG welder can do ANYTHING.....

Gary, no need to take out the short shaft. Leave as is and just weld on a short extension on existing short shaft to make a convertible handle. Over the years I’ve done this a few times.

Argeed Cliff.My comments were to show the user has options. I personally can TIG weld and some fine grinding can't tell it was ever "added on too". I like to reverse engineer "things".My issue is to reverse engineer an outside door handle I have to destroy it. At this time I'm not willing to ruin something that could help someone complete their car.

Gary, I don't think the convertible doors are thicker. The door handle position is a set a lot lower where the door is wider. Where the sedan door handles are fitted the door is narrower.
