Bill used his prop making skills to restore window handles for his dad’s 1968 Volvo P1800. The small windows on the car have old school handles to pivot the windows open and they were both broken. To restore the handles Bill uses some Bondo body shopping techniques along with molding and casting to create a shiny new set of handles.
