Unhappy Door panel handels

I have 2004 Ranger XLT 4X4. The handels on the inside doors have been replaced twice because the paint flakes off. If you have the window's down when it rains and the handels get wet ,the paint comes off on your hands. Can you help me.
Thanks Hammer Head

do you sand them and clear coat them when you paint them?

Never seen painted door handles from the factory, saw a pair of chrome interiors on one in a showroom, they were real eye catchers.
If you are going to repaint yours, clean them with acetone and spray them with Rust-o-Leum Fusion, then apply a couple coats of clear coat.

Are you talking about the rubbery coating? If so, I've noticed that the 05 door panels I grabbed for my brother, the 'handle' and where the switches would go has the same rubbery coating that the radio bezels have. Yet my 01's door panels do not and my friends 08 door panels do not have thatrubbery coating on them.

There's no way just rain lets them 'peel'. Best solution is to sand away the rubbery junk, adhesion promote it, base coat it with some semi-gloss black, then a dull or matte clear coat on top of that....OR...replace with door panel pieces that DO NOT have the rubbery junk.



As said above, please post pics.

If you don't know how, set up a photobucket.com account, upload your pics to photobucket, then copy and paste the IMG tag address here.

STL, believe we're talking about the actual grab handle panel that the switches would be. Again, can't be sure, OP ain't providing pics...
