There are some on PTCrew of handles done in both black and carbon fiber wrap, just look around and you'll see them (in the exterior section).

I was going to do this to my PT but I sold it before I got around to it.

I'd recommend picking up a set of used door handles and do the work once and do it right. This helps to alleviate having any downtime you'd have from taking off your own door handles.

Well it depends.

I thought it would've looked great on my PT since...here's how it looked like -





Black handles would've matched the tinted windows, the black SRT-4 rims, as well as the black Porsche Turbo emblem on the rear hatch (OEM Porsche emblem, not the cheap crap).

Second picture was older before I repainted and clear coated the rims. The top pic shows their true color, they were a nice jet black.

From the inside underneath the door panel. It's a pain in the ass I heard...can't tell you myself since I've never removed a set from a PT.

I'm sure you can find a write-up or how-to if you search around.

I'd wait if I were you.

Like my WS6, the clear coat is fading/peeling on my ram air hood but the rest of the car is immaculate. I want to get the hood redone but IDK, something tells me 'not yet'
