Painted Door Handles

My Jeep has those black door handles on it and I would like to put white ones on. The new ones are about $275 on JustforJeeps.com. Has anyone purchased the chrome covers and painted them? Also, has anyone seen these on a Jeep? Do they look as cheap as they costs?

Re: Painted Door Handles

yep......get the real deal. I doubt the painted chrome would be much cheaper or as durable

Re: Painted Door Handles

the only way to paint the chrome ones correctly is to sandblast or sand all the chrome off. paint won't stick to the chrome even if the chrome is sccuffed it still wont work right. Or ebay has the smooth paintable handles for 204 each,just need to paint them

Re: Painted Door Handles

I just used urethane primer on my oem black handles, and mirror covers... i sanded them down to a smooth mirror like surface, and painted them.

Re: Painted Door Handles

Did it. Much cheaper than getting them up here in Canada. But doesn't quite have the same effect. Do the full handles if you can afford it. If not, the painted chrome does an admirable job.
