    Ordered a color matched spray paint and clear to paint my pop n lock tailgate handle pyrite mica. came out pretty good except for the flatness (should have spent a little more time sanding). Initially did this because the pop n lock handle black paint was chipping so it needed to be painted anyway but now i'm glad i color matched it, I have the trd sport so it fits well with the door handles and bumpers.

    Will get some pics of the handle on the truck soon.

    Let me know what you guys think.

    Yea black sand pearl, and I mean the contrast with the pearl in the paint goes well against the silver.

    I bought the paint supplies from this website...

    http://www.automotivetouchup.com/

    I used the adhesion promoter, primer, base color and clear.

    The handle is fairly easy to take apart, just remember which springs go where.

    Lastly i got the spray can trigger, helped out a lot, gave a good consistent coat.
