door handles

my door handles on my 03 rubicon are starting to rust and peel. wondering if anyone has ever painted theirs (black), and if so what paint and how'd it look? i know it would only cost about 45 bucks to replace them both, but id rather save the money and taking the doors apart.

To do it right its going to cost $45 (or close) so i would replace them, or scuff the best you can and rattle can them. Will look like crap in a few days, but if you dont take the time to do it right......... thats what ya get.

I painted the tail gate latch and it still looks good however I just replaced the hard door outside handles and although they look great, it was a PITA if you don't have small hands.
