LOL.

Thanks!

I'm waiting on the final clear coat to dry on the door handles then I'll have those put on. I've gotta get these done before the morning 'cause I need my truck. I've got a meeting with the accountant in the mornin'! :eek2:

If I get a chance, I'll get some better pics in the morning.

Did you paint the body gaskets as well that go in between the door handle and door skin?

That's gay. I've seen some people paint those on other trucks and have problems with it flaking off the gasket because it's flexible. Hopefully it holds up for you.

It looks like it should.

My other handles are dry now. I'll have some new pics up within an hour or so. :D

Updated with the pics of the rest of the handles.

This clear is screwing things up for me. I believe DJLucas had the same issue with this brand of clear. The paint is a match, but when the clear goes on, it adds that yellowish tint. They'll work for now, and until then, they're staying. :p

Looks good. Too bad that clear sucks. Maybe a different brand would work out better? :shrug:

I just like how you painted the gaskets man... my boy has painted handles on his victory red colorado and the gaskets arent painted... totally ruins the look of smoothed and painted handles IMO.

(BTW the ones he got are the CCC ones and their f'in sweet minus the gasket issue)

Thanks guys.

Unfortunately, I'm VERY disappointed in the way they turned out. They're so off, it looks terrible. :(

This crappy clear royally sucks. I'm so tempted to sand them all the way down and redo them with a different clear.

I'll get some pics later today.
