So I'm installing these things this week to replace our plastic E36 door pulls.



and I was thinking of painting this part to match the surrounding tan color of the door panel...so the chrome trim doesn't look too busy and to make it look cleaner...



any advice onwhat to use in terms of painting or dying the trim to a tan color?

This is the effect I'm looking for...



its the door of an E90.
Notice everything is color matched around the door handle...

Shudogg is an unknown quantity at this point
you'd almost hafta just get a tan paint (probably not a gloss) and put it on some other piece of black plastic...then just go from there

i dont think there are too many variations of tan
