did you get any overspray on the truck?

since you didnt have painted handles isnt it all rough like the plastic ones are? did you sand it down at all smooth?

they can be painted if you prep them right .. scuff with scotch brite pad then build it up with a high build primer.. then light scuff and paint .. I did mine in silver when I painted the truck a month or so ago they turned out great
