Located two loop or D door handles:

1. should these handles be painted black?
2. should they be nickel plated?
3. keep the brass finish?

I located the following information on nickel plating any one familiar with the text contained in the booklet?

The term is “bale” handle and yes, they should be nickel plated.

George H, bales have strings to hold them together. They make good handles when feeding out.

George's car door handles are bail handles. Think of the bail holding the cow in place while it is milked, as it munches on baled hay.

Allan - LOL - of course you’re right. (You see that I’ve correctly spelled the contraction). But I thought the very early brass cowl lamps had a bale to enable them to be dismounted and carried by hand so I transferred this Horseless Carriage term to the bale handle on my 1919 Ford centerdoor. Actually, all this blathering is beyond the pail. ;o)

George, it gets really funny when posters refer to using bailing wire as tie wire. Bailing is what you do when the boat is sinking! Baling wire goes around hay bales.
