08 Mariner External Door Handle Covers?

Postby Frizzle Fry - May 28th, 2017, 5:53 pm

I bought my 08 Mariner Premier used, it was a lease for 10k miles, then an owner for the next 60k... I'm guessing that at some point, somebody put stick-on chrome covers on the door handles. They're paint to match, and each one of them has a large chip of paint (or two) missing from them which makes me think that some 3M double-sided adhesive pulled it off. The car is VERY clean, otherwise, and these flaked handles are an eyesore.

I've seen a lot of chrome stick-on handles online, but they all look 1) cheap and 2) like a polished mirror finish. Is there any solution that lasts a long time? Maybe one that looks like the "satin pewter" (i.e. not mirror chrome) like on the roof racks, grille, bumper, lettering, etc? I have only the one keyhole, drivers side.

How is the "pull" on the handle. Since you have a 2008, you may want to just repalce the handle. dorman has one for under $30.
