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.
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.
