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?

there are TONS of white door handles on car-part.com when i was looking for my blue handles i kept finding white handles. i got my handles for $20 each off car part and they are in brand new condition.

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

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

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.

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.
