I hate my painted door handles

Ok so I hate my painted door handles, dumbest thing to put on a pickup, I have almost 5k on my truck and my drivers side door handle has scratches from using the stupid thing. What the hell can I do to these, can I get them stripped to the plastic? I hate that there painted!!

I'm overly careful, I'm pretty sure it was my dad when he pulled it out of our shop

That sucks. I hate it when you try your best and somebody comes along and does stuff like this. I always mention to the service advisor to make sure my truck is returned to me without any NEW scratches and so on.

if you 3m them now it may hide the the scratches. On a separate note looks like you own a black truck better get used to imperfections. I finally got rid of my black and went to white.
