Painting door handles

I just recently purchased a 2001 Wrangler Sport with full metal doors. The paint on the door handles seems to be chipping off and I'd like to know if anyone has a suggestion on what type of paint to use. Thanks in advance.

Re: Painting door handles

I'd try SEM vinyl and upho;tery paint from the parts stores. I got some on a sideveiw mirro once and thought MEK or laquer thinner would take it off. I ended up trying to scrape it off with a razor blade and the paint pulled little pits of glass off with it. It's self etching and grabs pretty good.
