    OK so I have a friend with a 55 Cameo that has a broken tailgate handle, after a couple of years searching for a replacement we got tired of searching. I decided to try my hand at making a pair. This is the first iteration of what i'm after. A little tweaking and rounding of corners I think I may have it figured out. I suppose these would work for door and window cranks as well. Just wanted to show how these came together.

    Thanks Guys If any of you guys with Cameo's want the drawings for these I'll pass them along. or anyone else that wants them for that matter. They are stronger than they look.
