    How do you take the mirror caps part off? Would like to know so I can do this in a few weeks. Did you have to wet sand the clear and polish the mirrors caps?

    Edit- I will get burned for asking this because I did not search first.

    There are clips and double sided tape on the back that hold them on. You have to pry carefully between the cap and the mirror and they will come off. When you start you will see what I mean. I wet sanded and polished my mirror caps after i did them.

    perfect. didn't find those stores.

    I may just go with these if the Yukon's fit my truck... they should. Then take them to get the bezels painted

    more expensive, but this store has the white ones that should be able to be painted... I find it hard paying over $100 just for the tailgate handle & bezel tho compared to the above price.

    IIRC the LMC smooth handles that can be painted are around $20 a piece.

    I have a 2006 Silverado Crewcab, the truck is graystone metallic. Can I buy handles or mirror caps already color matched, or do I just have to paint my stock ones?

    I'm looking for solid colored handles, with no chrome.

    EDIT: On ebay I see a lot of color matched handles but they all have chrome on them as well.

    Search for tahoe/yukon handles.. if not I'll sell you a set of stockers and you can sand them smooth and have them painted. Painting should be no more than $25 imo.

    Thanks, do you know what year Tahoe/Yukon handles would be a direct swap with my truck?

    I'm on tapatalk so i don't know if you have an extended or crew cab, but any that came with smoothed handles. Best bet is getting somebody's old stockers and painting them. Can pm me if you want

    I've been searching a few days and still can't seem to find what I'm looking for. I'm looking for the paintable esky handles with chrome pulls, with keyholes on both sides. I've checked eBay, amazon, google, lmc truck, gm parts, rock auto and still come up with nothing. Anyone know somewhere to find and get a good deal on these? Thanks

    I hate to say this but it probably isn't going to happen. Contact Jason in the parts thread. If he can't get it for you, your best bet is a used set on eBay.

    Haha they have been for a while. They were when I bought mine 2 years ago. You might be able to call a dealer and have them search their system to see if any dealerships still have them in stock, or have someone paint you a set obviously. I had paid like $130 for the 2 door set.

    I used the full color matched handle and a stick on stainless handle. Worked until I found a chrome pull but sold the truck

    What year are those for? Will they fit an 04 sierra? And I'm guessing they only come in black?

    They're for 99-07c silverado and Sierra. They have keyholes on both sides. And yea, only come in black to be painted to match.
