    Default Ext Door Handles...

    Are they hollow? the pull part not the stub... Or are they a solid mold?

    Long shot but is anyone replacing a door or a broken handle and have a spare to butcher (if hollow)...

    Something like this embedded in pull part of handle and wired to the interior light would be the way to do it,

    You would probably have to run wires to each door.

    Drilled a small hole near the door pivot point to see, this looks like the best area for cabling to run for that.

    If they're wired to the window switch illumination they'll come on when unlocking via key press.
    I think if they're orange or yellow they're road legal, like the volvo possition lights.
