REQ: Help with Front Impala Door Panels into Caprice Door (Pull Handle MTG)
I'm looking at installing a set of Impala door panels into my Caprice. I'll have to run new power & ground wires for the light that the Caprice panels don't have (Dome light trigger circuit), but my question is in the area for the pull handle.
As you can see in the pix below (LH Panel, but RH door pic), my door doesn't have any captive nut, or an insert, or any material where I could simply run a sheet metal screw.
-Can anyone tell me what is in this area for the Impala?
-What's the typical fix/solution for this problem?

I did this Mod many years ago when converting to a Leather Interior and adding the Impala SS Panels. I was hoping I had a pic to show you but can't seem to find one to show them. Memory is pretty fuzzy but...
IIRC - there are just White Plastic clips that go into those slots you have hi-lighted in your pic. They are just White Plastic squares and it may just be simple License Plate clips that I used. The slots are oblong so you can slide the clip to line up with the Screws. Maybe check with the Dealer to see if he can get you a part number but again pretty sure I just used something like this....
