    Default check out my handles.....

    hey ladies and gents

    had my black door handles painted recently to star silver all courtesy of "gibbon7000" i sent him the handles and they came back within a few days with a perfect finish, so much so i asked if he sub-contrated to a paint shop. got some pics of before and after.

    oh and while your here check out my wheels as i havent shown you them yet.

    Look much better colour coded.

    Any more plans for the car..?

    I reckon that it needs dropping to make it and the wheels look better, lose the 'Club' badges and the orange indicators and it will look totally different

    Have to agree, colour coded handles look much better IMO. Though the black handles probably look better than chrome ones. Chrome handles amd mirror covers which some users like just dont appeal to me.

    Amazing is'nt it how those first black n white shots show up the difference in colours on the front nearside wing, typical of most cars these days.

    Strange how different people prioritise different mods. I dropped my LS onto new springs, removed the LS badges and change the indicator lenses, but still have the black handles (though i was looking at buying color coded one's, as I didn't think painting was possible).

    I've got a Star Silver facelift Veccie. (Life Model) so it also came with the ghastly black handles.
    However a few months back i changed onto the chrome ones, and imo they look fab..... and sets it apart just that wee bit more than the c/coded handles.

    Out of curiousity, how much did the respray of the black ones cost ? My black handles are just sitting here collecting dust, but may consider getting them resprayed for back-ups.
