How do you change the outer drivers door handle on a 1994 GMC Safari?

I did this on a 93 Safari. You have to take the inside arm rest / handle off of the door, then remove the entire door panel. There's an insulation, sound deadening sheet glued to the door beneath the panel. Some of that will have to be pulled back as well. After that, it's all about contorting your arms into shapes you never knew they could make by reaching way up inside the door, loosening a few nuts on the back side of the handle itself and pulling it out through the outside. Probably would help to have a friend when you try to put the new handle on.
