Bianca Miata - Door Handles

Fixed door handles
I was getting tired of telling my passengers to hold the door handle out to lock (yes, I lock my doors for insurance purposes), so I took them apart and bent the little tabs so they now function like normal door locks.

A few people have asked me why I lock my doors. "It's a convertible, " they say, "People can break in if they want to." I had a brief talk with ICBC, my insurance company, about this. For those who are not from BC, please realise that ICBC is government run, and is the only automobile insurance agency in the province. They said that if there is no evidence of forced entry, they are not required to pay for any other damages. So I'll be locking my doors.
