Default New Door lock Pins

So i've been wanting to take one of CREWZIN's idea's and put it in motion, and after one of his comments on one of my vinyl pix, i finally decided to go through with it.
After seeing my old lock pins

he asked if i was good with wrapping small things cuz they kinda stuck out like a sore thumb. Not his exact words but you get the point. So i ordered 4 pairs of these,

4 for the doors, and 4 for the holes where my rear head rests used to be.

and here's the end result





these are made out of billit alluminum, i think that's how you spell it, so the threads inside are metal too so i can't screw them down all the way. since i have the extra's, i'm gonna try to make the threads bigger so i can screw them down all the way and not make it look like my doors are unlocked all the time
i just wish i could find black seatbelts :'(

Looks great! Have u considered fabric and vinyl paint? Or just grabbin some household black fabric dye (idk if thatd work) and doing it yourself? Obviously youd want to remove the seat belt from the car though!

yeah i've thought about it but not to much. i'm focusing on other things right now. I tried to install a different shifter knob last nigh but it didn't work, i may have to drill into the shifter pole or what ever it's called, but i don't know if i want to go that for with it. i tried wrapping the original knob but it wasn't coming out the way i wanted so i scrapped it. so in the end i ended up with the same thing i had before. lol but i did fix the lock pins.
I used a 13/64 drill bit for metal and bored it out half way, now they go down all the way. check it out, this a before and after look at the pins when the door is locked.
