    Question Can you colour code handles while still on the car?

    As per the title - don't want to go removing my handles out of the door for painting. Is it easy to do them while still on the car and whats the best way of masking off and prepping them?

    Cheers guys

    You can struggle if you wish....
    ....but you won't be able to prep them or paint them as well as you could by removing.

    Obviously mask off the body of the car and any other bits you dont want painted..

    Ok - well if its better to take the door cards and handles off then I had better do that then!

    Is there a how to for it and I take it new clips are required for the cards after the old ones have been taken out?
