that's not a bad idea. at least for the handles since they will get a lot of use. and i'm still wondering if the side trim has holes under it..

well i just realized i bought the wrong paint.. it's not the fusion for plastic. hopefully when i coat it with the crystal clear gloss it will stay better. the "25% MORE!" sign on the can distracted me from checking if it was fusion.
