Black door handles

i am trying to find some gloss black door handles to replace the faded plastic ones. Could anyone point me in the right direction. I found some but i am unsure if they are glossy and of quality. Thanks!

You can treat them with a chemical call penetrol. Get it in the paint spraying section of Home Depot. It's used to thin paint before spraying it. Worked great on my jeep, should work on the handles too. Just wipe on and wipe off. $8.00.

I bought my front ones from this guy: Smooth Front Exterior Outside Door Handles Left Right Pair Set for Super Duty | eBay

Despite being really cheap, they are very good quality and fit perfectly.

I bought my rear ones from a different eBay company (carpartswholesale). Do not buy from these guys! Their handles were crap for fitment and I didn't realize it until after I had them painted. The handle is warped from top to bottom and causes the handle to make contact when I try to open the pass rear door. I tried putting some bits of small gasket behind parts of the handle to mitigate this but nothing seemed to help.
