Blackout ideas?

I have an 18 Black Tucson Limited which I've pretty much fully murdered out.

The only pieces I have to deal with are the door handles (no clue how to go black on those) and the grey trim at the bottom of the doors/back.

Any thoughts on how I can black these out? I'm dipping the grille/badges in the morning but I'm doubting dip will adhere/cure properly on the side areas.

Thoughts?

I actually bought oem black door handles for my tucson to piano/accent my Tucson Night edition Dazzling white.

Do not do a wrap, do not do plasti-dip, due to the heavy use on gripping and pulling the door handle. as for the grey trim i would grt that professionally painted.

I've always wanted to change my chrome door handles to blue to match the color. Only issue is that the Limited's chrome handles have the sensors and LED's in the front doors and the color matched one's don't.

Oh I'll never wrap/dip a door a handle. Been there, done that. Can you tell me where you you found the OEM? Also note I have the limited with the led sensors in them.

As for the grey trim I'll likely have someone I know spray it for me at their shop.

Thanks in advance your help!

I would definitely recommend getting the plastic trim professionally painted. I picked up my car last week after having this done and looks so much better. I do have to take it back tomorrow though, as they forgot to do the fog light surrounds.

Once that is done, I will be getting the foggies and DRL's tinted to match the headlights, but can't get my tail lights tinted until they have been customised first.

I used paint for plastic trim on the grey panels on the front, rear, and sides. I believe I purchased it from Summit Racing. I think it is made by VHT? It has held up really well for two years of driving, hitting bugs, rocks, etc.
I recently painted my chrome door handles. I scuffed them with scotch brite and sprayed them with adhesion promoter. Then a couple coats of black followed by a few coats of clear. Then wet sand/ polish. I was able to remove all but the drivers door handle to do this which makes it a fairly easy job.

2017 Tucson Limited - Tint 20%-35% - Ebay Korea Grill - Custom K&N Filter Warm Air Intake - Torq Tube - Flowmaster 80 Series Exhaust w/Dual 4" Stainless Tips - Oil Catch Can - LED LP Bubs - Painted rear reflectors, Roof rails, Front lower and Side lower trim - Husky Floor liners.

Did you just add Halos to your headlights? Did you do it yourself?

I have halos, HID upgrade, new eyebrow and LED sequential turn signals. I had the glass piece that covers the original eyebrow blacked out too. I was not confident doing it myself and had them custom made. Here is a better shot of them
