Color Matching Some Parts...

I thought I would color match my door handles. I also bought some chrome mirror covers to color match.

Here are the chrome covers I got...



Sanded, adhesion promoter, and primer...



A few coats of top coat...



Here are the smooth handles I got from eBay disassembled...



Sanded, adhesion promoter, and primer....



Here are the parts with clear coat. I did 3 base coats and 4 clear coats. I waited 10 minutes between base coats and then waited for 30 minutes before spraying the clear. I waited 10 minutes between clear coats.








Here are the mirror pieces temporarly put on the mirrors. I still have to color sand and buff.





Color seems to match perfectly.

Here is the paint from automotivetouchup.com and some duplicolor high build primer and adhesion promoter...

I did not take the mirror apart. They are the chrome mirror covers like in the first picture. I just painted the covers to match the color of the truck.
