Nearly everyone I've talked to about painting chrome says even if you prep right you might run into problems with peeling, chipping etc.. If their just the covers don't you have black ones underneath.

yeah that is a delicate surface that gets handled alot...it chips and peels easly, specially if u wear rings or anything like that, that can scratch the surface....I'm not sure if he has plastic underneath or not.... Some of those require u to remove the other door handle and back cover.1995 Chevrolet Silverado Z71

Why not just Prime them, sand them to a smooth finish, and spray automotive paint, then clear coat. If you don't feel like doin all that a shop could do it for pretty cheap.

your best bet is to buy ones that are already painted black, or another color and have them painted. i bet a shop would charge 150 ish to have a set painted. but i wouldnt recommend painting chrome handles.
