Re: 2007 Renault Megane Door Handles? Which Silver Paint?

You'll need to give the handles a light rub-down, focusing on the edges where the existing coating has fallen away, so that they are feathered-in.

You will also need a plastic primer.

I'm unsure if that chrome paint needs lacquering - you'd be best to check with the seller.

It's best to shake the can before using for at least a minute, spray in a sweeping motion from around 8-12 inches away, and do light coats.

It's also vital not to release or initially depress the nozzle whilst over the handles, as the nozzle can 'spit' and you'll get a run or sag appearing in the paint.



This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
