I would think you could order some already painted ones from the dealer or on ebay for cheaper than that and they would probably look better because they would be smooth.. JMO

i did mine and it was easy with basic knowledge of painting,i just used 120 grit sand paper and sanded all of the texture out,spray adhesion promoter,primer ,wet sand with600 grit then spray your base, let that dry for about thirty min. and then spray ur clear. all in all i had about $110.oo bucks in it for all four of my doors

yea i definently want them taken off and done right im shure yours came out great but i couldent see myself doing it. im just thinking ill take them off myfelf and just take them to one of the local shops and have them prep n paint them for me the most expensive part was the labor of breaking down all the handles off the truck and putting them back on.. and LMC does not have some already smooth handles ready for paint nor does the dealer..
