Here's a shot of another car with the GT kit.  Makes the strip look more
vinyl covered to me, but might have been chrome.

ISTR Piggott wrote that the outside handles in the GT kit were different
than the TR3A handles.  For one thing (again IIRC), the 3A doors had a
raised plinth for the handle base, but the GT handles just bolted to the
door surface.
