    its probably easier to find someone breaking a coupe or gsi and have the handles off that, the gsi's have colour coded strips but are a different shape. pm turbochris he might be able to sort you out

    I have just done my door strips and roof strips, just this minute applied final coat of laquer, If your close i would glady do them for you for a small fee providing you provide the needed requirements lol.

    If your not close and could live without door strips on the side of your car for a few days you could mail me them by all means with enough to cover the cost of paints.

    I wouldnt do the door handles for you tho as i havnt done these yet so would like to try on my own b4 i ruin someone elses lol.

    Ill post pics up for you in 15mins or so if you like

    Basically remove, Rub down, Filler primer then normal primer, Flat it off, Base coat, flat off then laquer it, flat it off again and polish up.

    Thats the way I do it and it always comes out spot on.
