Default chrome door handle cups

Are these worth purchasing or do they just make the PT look gaudy or great...are they worth the money?

It's just a matter of taste. But they do stop fingernails from scratching the paint?

Had them on my 2002 and they were one of the first Mods on my 2006. As I have a black PT that needed a little "chrome" touch up, I think they add to it. IMHO that is.

I have a set on order for my 'Vert. I think that they are a good idea as others have mentioned for the fingernail thing. I also like the looks of them. I have a black car and I do want to add some chrome to it.

Hey did you contact the Alberta Cruisers?

Regards
Terry

I added the cup only to the rear hatch (you can buy just the one) just for the chrome. Never had a problem scratching behind the door handles.

I love the scoops on mine. To me, they look like they should have been there when the Cruiser rolled off the assembly line. Plus, as has been mentioned several times, they protect the paint - for me, they primarily protect against te keys I usually have held in my paw as I open the door...
