You're welcome Deep Blue, I'm not buying any more handles either, so you got my last on-hand set.
If anyone else wants a set, I'll only look per request, so I won't have any immediately available.

-Ok SuperK,thanks again for your attention,I´m very glad to got the last one,
but I hope so you get more for who wants it,those handles are really awsome! :roll:

PS:They arrived today!!! (09/22/2009) :lol:

Post Re: Installing Chrome Miata Handles
they would look the same as the pictures of the chrome miata ones on the first page in this thread... maybe not as good though depending on the paint you use :shrug:

I updated the first post with your pictures, mooneggs and added a little info describing their differenc... erm, rather their similarity.


Evo, I still sell the chrome handles if you want them.

Word about spraying chrome paint: A lot of chrome paint is a type of enamel, which wears when you rub it and turns a icky squishy soft grey. I learned this while trying to chrome some accessories to an old laptop. Failure.

alright so all i have to do is go easy on the paint when spraying these handles and they should be good with no fail.

Post Re: Installing Chrome Miata Handles
no its still a fail. hes saying they rub off over time. you might be alright if you use alot of clearcoat 5-7 coats minimum. id go with an acrylic clear coat as its thicker then usual. just be sure you dont make the coats too thick and wait 10-15min between coats or it will get all cloudy.

i usually use dupli colour acrylic clear enamel

this looks like it may work pretty well for ya http://www.canadiantire.ca/AST/browse/3 ... ?locale=en


ive also read some chrome paint turns grey when you clear coat it so who knows if it'll work.
