Installed unpainted.
Installed the handles unpainted. Car has other black trim so they look fine. A little harder to install front handles than the video indicated. My hands were to large to unhook and hook cone ting rods. Ended taking off door latch to gain access. A bolt holding the handle on corroded and the old handle broke and the bracket broke when I tried to remove it. Had to rebuild bracket which was time consuming. The other three went on much easier and all work fine.

The parts are good, the How-To is the magic.
The parts came, they were in good shape, and factory shaped perfectly. The real treat here is the video tutorial (and many more) that I watched while I worked (and before I got started - very important) which made this job amazingly easy compared to if I tried by myself. Kudos to 1Aauto for the tutorials!
