Couldn't you just sand the stock handles, prime (ABS specific), paint (primer specific), clearcoat (paint specific) and polish? Isn't that basically what ordering the primed ones from ford is?

Sure if you use nice paint it would probably be similar (cost wise) to buying the primed ones from Ford but hey, might work.

Crice, where did you buy the primed ones from ford?

I didn't mind that mine looked a bit dull until I saw how nice the gloss black looks.
