Door handles peeling

My interior handles are peeling. Anyone seen any aftermarket handles? Or should I just peel the rest of an paint it? I'm just not sure about the paint because none of my interior is painted, and the door handle gets used so much.


Minor mods... Wheels, de-badged & de-trimmed, stereo, grill, intake, eyelids.

I would just peel it off and paint it, but thats just me.

My 'Balt, Camryn, is my baby. She's a black '09 LT 2.2L with the performance appearance package. I believe that if you take care of your car your car will take care of you.

common problem. Once mine actually fall off I'll just paint it chrome, or flat black
