    Door Handles and Mouldings

    Just wondering if anyone here had their door handles and mouldings replaced with primed ones and sprayed?

    If so where did you get it done? and how much did it cost?

    So did they use some primer spray to cover your originals?

    I was just curious coz mines in the vauxhall bodyshop at the moment having some repair work done due to some ***** in a van caving my door in.

    Ive been quoted £361 to have all the mouldings and door handles replaced and sprayed!! Rip off huh?

    The door handles work out at about £25 a piece - primed , and the mouldings look good and can now be bought primed too. £300+ is way over the top -
    why do today what you can...... I'll finish this later

    I'll be interested to know to, as I'm looking to have my handles, bump strips and the rear boot handle done.

    Let us into your secret, mate ...

    You can use your original handles and strips but get them sprayed in plastic primer first, any decent bodyshop will do this anyway but some as Markja knows don't.

    Well if anyone of you live near Brighton you could also get it done for £50. I know the bloke who does my spray work and he works on his own and he is well good i take all my stuff there to get sprayed, i've seen some of the cars he's done and there unbelivable. He buys and does up american muscle cars, and some of them are ******** mental!!!

    When i see him again i'll try and take some pics of the cars he's done you'll be well impressed!!

    Lucky you can get it so cheap Chris!

    I've reluctantly got mine done at vauxhall now along with the repairs so I have to pay the £361 they quoted me.. I suppose convenience is why I did it, hate being without the car and I guess its better to have everything done at once..

    Only thing is, If Id known Vauxhall were gonna have a problem getting parts then I wouldnt have bothered, theyve already delayed it for 2 days!
