Door handle removal

I have an S model so my door handles and mirrors are black plastic instead of silver.

I'm thinking about pulling it all and skim coating it with bondo and spraying them to match the car. Anyone pull these handles or know how.

Not too sure, I would look at taking the door trim off though. Go from the inside. It might work.

That's actually what I was thinking. I'm wondering how hard it's going to be to paint them and make it look factory. I was hoping to find someone who sold them like they do the factory style spoilers.

Is there anywhere I can buy mirror caps and door handles already painted?

Here's the mirrors.

Doesn't look like they sell handles painted. Only primed. Wouldn't be terribly difficult to paint them though.
