    Tried searching for this but couldn't find anything. You know how you get all these scratches from finger nails behind the door handle when reaching to open the door? Aside from hust being careful, can anything be done to prevent or lessen that?

    Someone posted these carbon fiber looking magnetic cups that fit in there perfectly. I was thinking about getting some for mine but can't seem to find the thread.

    I like that vinyl stuff from Amazon, that may be coming in the mail soon for me.

    In the mean time I have the same issues on the passenger door (wife) as long as its a top scratch, use Meguiars Scratch X. Its a polish/rubbing compound great for getting those little annoying things as long as its not deep in the paint.

    I am extremely pleased with them, and they are not a sticker they are magnetic. They have survived severely washes and two 5-hour drives under extreme winds so I would recommend them for sure. Not to mention they protect from nail damage.

    My wife is extremely hard on this, I swear it's her engagement ring that scratches door handle pockets, inside if the windshield when wiping off a fogged window, side windows from wiping fog, and sometimes the drivers rear door just getting in. The latest thing are these ladies jeans with metal buttons on the back pocket. Now she has scrape marks on her leather drivers seat in the Camry XLE, of course she things it's not her that's doing it.

    I'd be interested in these protectors if they were cut right to the contour and clear. With a white truck I really don't want to see that they are on there.

    Check out the Cupeez website, I think they do have different styles.
