seen people put up. I didn't mind paying it be bc they do good work and are located just a 3 miles from my house (I also don't trust myself to DIY). The next closest places which were a bit cheaper were a good 25-30 miles away. So I paid for the convenience factor as well.
I don't know of dipping the door handles would work well, unless you plan to never open the door. Would imagine tugging on a door handle daily, the plasti dip would come off rather quick? I called a place in my town for an estimate on the door handles. Told him I had 4 white ones that I wanted to swap out the chrome with. He said they would do it for $150. I explained again what I wanted and he quoted me that 2x more. Now that is way way way below my expectation and he either made a large mistake and he was just saying random numbers, or he is unaware of the work involved. Plan to call them again when I am back from traveling and confirm. If it is that price (which I'm not banking on), the door handles will go in sooner than later.
