This took off the whole Electric RUBY RED/black pass side mirror unit. It was replaced and painted for $348.67. And took all of $45 and half an hour to do job. It was out the door $402?. So you can see that $380 to PAINT a OLD handle is insane.
Even if TEXKIATECH might be correct and my $6 dollar door handle paint job fades or peels after a Month or more. I bet I can repaint it a lot of times from that $6 can of paint before I need to spend $80 or $380 to have it look like a bodyshop did the painting.
Anyway Kias factory paint job on the door handle was peeling off and the wife kept pointing it out to me.
I have a 98 Nissian Maxima with the dark maroon Nissan calls it rosewood. Well it naver peeled or has faded I just wash it and polish it just like I did my Sorento.
The 03 Sorento does not have the paint quality the 98 Nissan has.
