Don't. lol

Needed to remove the door handles to get them color-coded Jet Black, well.. one thing led to another, and this is what had to get removed in order to get the door handle out.







So yea, just giving you guys a heads up in case anyone ever tries to take their handles off for paint or cf work. Normally door handles come off with 1 screw on the inside of the door jamb, but clearly we're not dealing with "normal" here

That must have been a lot of CF parts that had to get cleared

it took me two hours to do my drivers side. I had an extra door handle wrapped in gloss black vinyl. I'm thinking i can do the passenger side in an hour now. It's really not such a hard job. A little experience in aligning the glass is helpful. Remember to use masking tape to mark the final location of the glass prior to disassembling the window.

The trim ring around the door handle from the outside? Does is just pop off or
Do you have to take the entire assembly out like you did
From the inside? Thanks guys

Make sure you align the window properly as it will leak badly if not aligned as per OEM

I hated it when I changed mine to CF

I just have a feeling that after all this, once done with putting back together, it will never be the same. You may start hearing random chatter from loose bolts or improperly fitting parts.

I need to replace the trim around my door handle, the piece with the lock/unlock button. Do I need to remove the glass and everything still?
