    Default Colour Coded Door Handles

    Hi guys,

    I'm slowly doing small bits and bobs to mine and the g/f's 2.2 DTi LS.

    As it comes with horrid black handles, I want to get them the same colour as the body (have thought about chrome covers but don't think they'll suit the silvery / grey colour of the car).

    Has anybody sprayed their's before? I've painted a spoiler before on my old Mk3 Astra so feel confident, but never done door handles. Do you have to remove them from the car 1st? And what should I do with the thin spacer/seal between the handle and the door, paint it or leave it black or remove it? I don't really know what it does!

    Cheers.

    Not 100% certain but the guy I bought it off said it was lightning silver. It's not the brightest metallic silver I've seen, more of a dull grey.
    Have to say it's very similar to yours, if not the same. What colour is yours? And yours does look pucka with the handles and mirrors!!

    So what do you reckon chrome would look like on mine? I'd written it off cos it's not that much of a contrast to the car.
