    Default interior door handle refurb opinions

    basically the state of the interior handles was shocking when i got the car, all that thin rubbery coating flaking off. originally i covered it in carbon fibre, but never really liked the look of it tbh, on certain things i think it looks great, but on the door handles i just wasnt a fan. i have various colours of vinyl (im a self employed signwriter, or car sticker maker as my boy prefers to call me lol). ive tryed matt black so it matches the steering wheel as the button parts flaked aswell, so rubbed it off leaving a nice black finish lol, and i cant help thinking the black breaks up the dull grey a bit, and ive tryed anthracite vinyl which is pretty close to the original grey, but the pictures dont really reflect this. which do you think suits better?

    matt black





    anthracite








    might just get some paint in the long run, but this is free for now lol

    so which looks better?

    Like the high gloss black look. Say it would look well against the Chrome trim.

    i say matt black, but as you can see it does have a slight shine to it, but the anthracite is proper gloss vinyl
