'75 Trade Wind door and lock

Another job in the future will be to re-skin the door and get it reshaped to fit. I gotta see if I can get the handle re-chromed. This handle is sooooo expensive to replace. Anyone ever re-chrome a handle like this? How expensive was it? Any prep ideas is appreciated. I've also noticed the lock lever is broken off. I wonder if I can fix it?

The interior locking knob screws in. You might be able to drill a hole in the broken stud and remove it with an ez-out.

You can get a replacement part here:
Inside Locking Latch 380347 [380347] - $34.95 : Out-of-Doors Mart!, More Airstream Parts on-line than anyone!
or find something a lot cheaper to screw into the hole.

Wow, thanks. I will check that. I'm gonna see how expensive the re-chrome job is before I try to fix it. I know these latches are sooooo expensive new. Like between 450 and 600. Phew!!!
