Exterior Door Knob??? Neighbors overspray?

The door knob on our 64 GT has been replaced with an ugly bronze interior knob with white caulking all around it. The keyed lock is below and it is ok.
What replacement door knobs are out there that would look right ????

also...neighbor spray painted his fence on a gusty day and oversprayed on our GT body and windows!!!! Advice on what to clean it off with. I think it was a stain as it is thin blotches of spray. Help! The same house trimed a tree and put a hugh dent in the rear (rounded) corner, as well as scratches.
I guess its time to move...

Rivet Dangerous location!

Try Mineral Spirits.

Have them put in an insurance claim in on their liability (home owners) policy.

Yeah, you should file a damage claim with their insurance company. Get a couple Airstream dealers to give you estimates for the dent repair. Then take it to a couple body shops and get some estimates for the paint/stain overspray removal.

Even if you do the work yourself, they are obligated to pay you a fair amount based on multiple estimates of the going rate from professional repair shop facilities.

We replaced ours with a 'Plymoth' style knob from Schlega. It's most likely not going to be available at HomeDepot...but it can be special ordered from a lock shop.

Here's a link to an earlier thread with the details of ours, post #13

You can't tell from the pictures, but it is a smaller, flater knob than most and doesn't stick out to far to bang into the side of the trailer when opened 180-degrees. We are very pleased with it.
