    Do they only make the door handles out of plastic? This might be a stupid question, but I'm just trying to making sure; I want to color match my door handles and I am not sure if I need buy primed metal door handles, or if I could just sand mine down and do it myself.

    I know I've seen the rear view mirrors that are made of metal, but I have been looking everywhere on the internet to buy them, but no such luck in finding them. (All the ones I've seen were made of plastic)

    for what it is worth, in 1998 i had the handles of my civic matched with metallic silver and cleared. they were originally black plastic. they looked fantastic for the 10 years i owned that car. apparently they were prepped properly by the shop i used.

    This is a good write up for painting your mirrors.

    I'm a little confused, those are not already painted Black sand pearl, right? I already have the stock pieces black, just need a color match. Thanks for the links guys.

    I'm going to head over to the dealership after my last final exam tomorrow, Winter break ftw!:D

    - Would be better to get them faster too, I bet it'd take over a week for ground shipping.
