Nice move. I had my vinyl shop do the same for me... Approximately $50... But i did all the removing and reinstalling. Looks very legitimate.

Very Nice! Interested in hearing step by step process of the chrome door handle inserts when you get a chance.

Has anyone done white vinyl or white plasti dip on the handle chrome on a white car? The black just doesn't look right to me on Alpine white.

clean up first and cut a piece can fit the part, then put on and use the hairdryer to heat up the film, its gonna be really soft, find a card like a credit car or any use the corner to push film in the gap, and cut rest off.. Dont know if this can help

I tried this. Bought a piece of white vinyl online and did a quick test. It did not match AW in color exactly...but it did look good. I also tested the black, and IMO I don't think it looks right either. So, I am going IND painted to get a perfect match or possibly just keeping the hint of chrome.

I am going to try some vinyl. Local shop has a couple different "whites". I will see if one is close enough. The handle exchange is just too much of a bother for such a small change.

If you get something that is a close match, please post!
