very easy, take the antenna off, the chrome nut unscrews and it done. the handle you have to remove the plate on the gate. The 2 torx if you have a camera and 2 8mm ( if I remeber correctly) nut that hod the handle and linkage together. about 15 min to remove both.

Those pieces were textured right? What kind of prep work did you do to get to the end result?

yes they were textured. I sanded the pieces with 280 then primed them then sanded and primed 2 more times. Then I believe I did 4 coats of color and 4 coats of clear. The color and clear I got from mopar and the primer was duplicolor.
