All I can suggest is take your time, it will be more enjoyable (you are saving money), and the result will be more satisfying (it'll be to a standard you are rightfully proud of).

I'd give the handles plenty of time for the paint to dry & harden up, mainly because - once fitted, they will be getting a fair bit of wear & tear.

Take a pic or two (or more), I'm sure they will turn out just grand.

hi paul,

thanks for the advice. ive done 2 coats of lacquer on one of my mirrors but its got like a very light orange skin affect on it. its not major but its not perfectly smooth either.
im back to square one with the handles, or atleast the lock bezels. the lacquer seems to have formed into a puddle and has also went white... so im in the process of rubbing it back off.
