The black abs plastic is not printable man. The paint will not adhere properly to it. It will chip away and look like total crap fast. they are removable from the inside of the door.

Your only other options aside from the primed door handles is to get "chrome door handle covers" on ebay. sand them down and then paint them and install them. Not nearly as durable in the long run trust me. I had those painted gloss black properly and about 8 months down the road they were chipping away and scratched up. That's going through the whole sanding process and painting them with promoter, primer, paint, and clear doing the proper wetsanding and the finish still flawed due to the covers being chrome plated plastic

Nope! (= there is no such thing. Ford only has black abs, chrome, or primed door handles. The only option is to get primed ones. I did my research guys

replacement handles. I tried the covers and they look great initially then a few months down the road they will start to flaw because of the material they are made of.

For all of you who have the "squeky issue" this is a pic of the e-brake ring you need to either put silicon on or just spray it with a lubricant spray of any kind like liquid wrench. it makes it stop squeaking(=
its under the drivers side of the car before the rear tire. I figured id post a pic to those who are still confused.
