Ah yes, the door handles are one of those silly things that builders fixate on causing their build time to increase exponentially. They were custom made, mostly by me, with some parts purchased, some machined, and some fabricated. First, the aluminum blocks attached to the door frames came from some latches I purchased from Murle Williams. (www.MurleWilliamsAviation.com) The latches didn't work, but the pillow block door attachment, the wavy washers, and the hex bolt were useful. (Only $75!!!) The machined parts were the female step-bushing receivers for the bolt. I bent up the 1/8" aluminum plate and glued it to the step-bushing with acrylic adhesive. (After treating all the aluminum with Metal-prep and alodine.) The hex head bolt is glued into the bushing with blue Lok-tite and the wavy spring washers between the bushing and door block keep the handle from rotating when open. The delrin receiver blocks I ground and polished myself and attached to the sill via screws into riv-nuts. They must be made custom for each side to get the right thickness depending on your door, sill, and door covering. (I use bubble doors.) The whole thing works really well, thereby completely justifying the ridiculous cost and effort required to build them. (HAHAHAHAHAHA!) Oh yes, the knobs are wood and were purchased. (Can't remember who makes them and I doubt they're around anymore anyway.) I've sent drawings via direct email since Matronics can't handle attachments.

Good luck!

Hi Guy and Kitfoxers,
 
A while back, I think you posted some pictures of the inside of your Fox.
 
I loved the door handles. Where did you get those great inside door closers?
 
Mine has the standard ones which have released causing the door to pop open a couple of times--a certain distraction!
 
Thanks, Grant

OK more info. I think I got the knobs from the guy that makes these. Not sure if Aircraft Spruce will release the name of their vendor, but with a little pleading you just might make contact.
