Daughter left door open and scraped the door handle on some wood. Looks like the black plastic on the door handle is damage. Where can I buy black plastic touch up paint?

The last thing I would do is paint those handles.

Try cleaning them, maybe with a scrub brush or pad, use a plastic cleaner and treatment. I might even try to sand or buff them. Try products like 303 Aerospace or Back to Black.

Then, if all else fails, and you really want to paint them go to a local paint store or Home Depot/Lowes and get a good spray paint formulated for plastics.

Heat might also help fix the discolouration. I've heard that a heat gun can bring back the black on faded fenders. Maybe heat would work for door handles as well? Just be careful to protect the paint on the door behind the handle.

Alternatively, I bet they would be cheap and easy to pull off of a wreck at a junkyard. Then you could have spares for next time ;-)
