Chrome door handles

Anyone have chrome door handles on their 99 up? I took mine off and painted them. They looked better than black but nothing like chrome. I know they have the whole handle to replace, as well as the plastic stick ons or whatever they are. I'd rather not have the stick ons. I know there are probably 37 different makers for them, but anyone know who makes the better ones and are fairly priced?

I just don't want anything cheap, ya know? I'm actually thinking about having mine done in body color too but with the condition that the rest of the paint is in I may not.

Yeah, well ummm banshee....bling bling....Maybe it does help it go faster!!! The chrome is super duper smooth versus the rough texture of the factory handles!! Ha ha, ya that'll help in the 1320!
And SPV I agree, however a friend of mine put the plastic stick ons on his HD chevy and they looked great. He did it a while back and I haven't seen his truck up close for a while. I want to get a look at it soon to see if the winter weather has had any adverse effect on them.

I looked over all the options and the Putco stick on looked the nicest and had the best match to the factory chrome, as well as the best reputation. Mine should be here any day I will snap some pics and let you know.
