What color were the door handles to start with and why did you have to buy new fronts and not the rear?

Is it possible to paint the chrome grill rather than buy a new one?

All the door handles were chrome form factory, the fronts have the keyless entry system and at the time of wanting to change them out I got scared of the electronics in them so I decided to buy new.

After doing the front and realizing that the chrome piece is just a cover that can be removed I decided to try and save a few $ and paint the rear ones. It was semi easy but a lengthy process to sand off the chrome and paint it several times. It turned out good and people cant tell I painted them until I point it out, In the end it may have been simpler to buy the rear ones either way I'm happy to have color matched door handles.

You can paint it but the paint wont stick and will peel over time, unless you sand blast the plastic chrome off, or sand it for hours on end. it was much easier to buy a new ready to paint grill.

To blend the front and rear windows, so there isnt a body colored stripe between the two pieces of glass. I myself prefer the black between the windows but appreciate what others have done.
