I don't think you could bend your 04 handle to fit. Most people use the 05+ handle, but still have to bend it a little to make it sit evenly in the ebrake opening. I believe some people have kept their 02-04 brake handle, but changed the top trim piece to a rhd drive version.

As for the radio bracket, I'm pretty sure you'll need the 05+ bracket. If you use the stock 02-04 radio mounting brackets the radio will not be aligned properly and you won't be able to fit the tr bezel, because the radio will sit too high.

I tried to use the 02-04 brackets with my oem double din and I encountered this problem.
