For a while now I've been interested in getting my tailgate handle smoothed and painted to match my Escalade door handles. Recently someone posted an Ebay auction for a chrome tailgate handle which I thought would finish off my Escalade handle look quite nicely...however I was not ready to throw down $80+ for just a handle and then still have to go through the trouble of painting the bezel myself. While searching the internet I found this site:

http://www.str8ballerz.com/Tailgate Handles and Bezels.htm

I guess my question is: has anyone dealt with these people before? Am I going to get screwed if I order their painted bezel and chrome handle combo? I realize that it isn't chrome plated, but I thought for the price difference I'd get the same look and probably no one could tell...plus even if I went with buying just the chrome cover, I'd still have to get the bezel painted somewhere (since I'm by no means a good painter) so I thought if I could save a few bucks and get everything at once to go ahead, but these small time internet retailers always worry me...

Yeah I seen those on there too. I've known about that site for a while now but never heard of anybody that bought from them. I'm sure someone here has or knows somebody that did.

I was looking into that as well. I have the Escy Handles, but I was pondering the idea of just getting the painted on w/o the chrome because I think it would look cleaner with the roll pan and 03 tails.

what do you guys think.

Hmm...I'm getting real tempted to just place my order as well...

The only question I had was with the chrome handle cover...does it use tape to stick on or is it some sort of clip system? Anyone have any idea?

Either they're really fast or really slow...haven't heard anything from them. Could be one of those places where they just ship your order before even contacting you. I doubt it though, I haven't been charged yet either.
I just had the charge show up on my credit card bill (I can check it online). Did you use paypal?

I doubt they'll contact us, before they ship (esp. being on a weekend). I hope to expect my piece by Monday or Tuesday...I'll keep you guys updated...

Saw this on the page for "escalade handles"

Please allow a 2 week Turnaround on
Painted handles

Looks like they would at least send you a "thank you for your order! Due to the custom aspect of these, there will be a two week turnaround on your order, we apologize for this inconviencence and appreciate your business!"

But i'll bet a dollar they didn't have the courtesy to do that :anitoof:
