BlackMetal 2004TJ awesome guys thanks for the feed back ill def be looking into rusto bedliner. i think i would like the texture too

Blackpony04 You can use generic vehicle trim paint if you want to maintain the factory texture and it's cheaper than Rusto Bedliner and should last a few years. Me, I went Rusto Bedliner all the way because well, that's what half my Jeep is painted with!

2002TJ Well don't do what I did...less than a year ago I bought chrome door paddles off eBay and friggin finally got them installed....they started rusting in weeks, and I don't live in the rust belt.

It was afterwards I discovered Rustoleum spray bed liner in the rattle can.....That suff sticks really good unlike plasticoat, and it holds up. I use it on all sortsa little suff and big stuff...metal and plastic items....just scruff the surface first.

For door handles, I'd mask them off, then scruff with scotchbrite, then spray in place....just make sure to mask very large area if even slightest breeze, and hit it with several light coats

X2 but I left mine on and they turned out great. I love the texture

BLK00TJ Rustoleum bedliner. I've used that stuff on all the handles, bumpers, and sliders and can attest that it holds up and doesn't fade. The next time I spray my flares I'll use it there too.

bobbav I just sanded mine in place, then primed them. Once they were dry, I sprayed them with gloss black Rust-o-leum.

Best paint for door handles?

The door handles on my jeep are pretty warn down and even a little rusty. What would be the best way to paint them? Touch up paint, spray paint or a bed liner? Im really considering plasti-dip or a spray bed liner
