Can car door handles be painted on to match the overall style of a Chevrolet C1500? Answer: Since car doors are rarely available in different colors, painting over them is perfectly fine. However, there are a few things to remember when painting car door handles. First and foremost, door handles should not be painted bare or unprimered or else the paint will peel and chip. The type of paint used should also be kept in mind. Acrylic latex or oil-based primers will not work on metal car door handles. The finish could fail and result to a blotchy handle. Instead, it is recommended to install/purchase pre-primered door handles or at the very least plastic door handles if there is intention to paint over them.
Is it recommended to purchase used Chevrolet C1500 door handles? Answer: Scouring used door handles at salvage yards is only recommended for older cars. Since finding a new door handle that fits could be next to impossible for phased-out or discontinued car models, looking through used door handles could be the only option. However, this is not the case for Chevrolet C1500 door handles. It is still highly recommended to purchase new door handles from trusted manufacturers or distributors. Used door handles requires extra cleaning and maintenance before it can be installed on a car. And even after that, quality and longevity of the door handle cannot be guaranteed, especially if the used auto part has been exposed to the elements for a long time. So as a rule of thumb, install only new Chevrolet C1500 door handle.
Why is it important to know the Chevrolet C1500's door handle part number when purchasing a replacement? Answer: There is no such thing as universal door handle. Each replacement part is made according to the specifications of each make and model. Although all door handles might look the same, only one kind would fit into a Chevrolet C1500. That is why it is important to take note of the door handle part number when searching for a replacement part. Most part numbers are listed on the Chevrolet C1500's vehicle manual. If it is not specified in the manual, information is also available through the car's original dealer or the manufacturer.
