No home made paint job here i'm affraid. :p

Although i'm perfectly capable of producing a Good finish (being an acomplished art and design graduate) i have had my interior bits done proffesionally (luckily we have a friend in the body shop trade) so i'm not sure of the proffesional prosedure but i can say we have certainly put a lot of business his way after people have seen his work :thumbs_up:

i think you should spray the handle! will look all one part
The more i look at it the more i agree with you, especially in that picture.

Originally i was worried i would over do the respraying and just wanted to keep it to a subtle sytlish minimum, like if i do the handle then the window winder looks odd then the door mirror triangle would look odd if not done also.....etc...etc.... so easy to go ott

So do you think the whole handle section could be done and leave the rest of the door? bear in mind the winder is on borrowed time ;)

I agree with dearing to just spray the handle. if you really dont want to go overboard with spraying then get some of those chrome winders off ebay.

Im thinking of getting some interior corsa parts so i can spray them but im not sure wether to do them red or silver or a mixture of both.
