Good call. They guy I bought my black 04 6s from put chrom everywhere and it is taking me tons of time to rip it all off. Chrome side view mirrors, chrome trunk plate, chrome handles, wood dash kit with about 100 god damn pieces. All this 3M cheap looking crap. Who wants this shit on their car??? Its Triflin

If he wants to get chrome then who cares, your responce had nothing to do with the question. There isnt anything wrong with chrome, unless you have too much, a little bit is good taste though. I have been wondering if I should replace mine or not, I am probably going to wait until I get chrome rims (all in good taste, nothing bling bling, so dont flame me).

As for the original question, I have no idea, did you try searching?

Haha! Then slap me twice and call me a ricer son! :D

I like slight touches of chrome and I like chrome wheels, BUT I have to agree on overdoing it with the door handles, mirrors, and window trim. Those will never see the light of day on my car. Subtle is better because then it doesn't overpower. The statement above is somewhat true and overdoing the chrome throws you in the :wtf: category. Still it's your car so enjoy it. Don't listen to the "experts" on this board. ;)

I actually saw someone around my town with the chrome handles on their SG 6. I have to say i was actually pretty impressed with how they looked. However, the other chrome he had stuck on there too...like the pillars, trunk trim, lower grill,fuel door, door guards, grill mustache, and chrome tint made me giggle to myself as he drove by. so, the handles might be welcome addition to some...depending on color. But, IMHO, the only chrome I will have ever added on my car would be my exhaust pipes...

Repo, that car looks sick. You did an awesome job on it. With the whole chrome thing I think that you can over do it. I personally think that on some of the colors of the 6 look good with the chrome handles. The chrome pillars and mirrors is over-doing it a little though. Of course chrome rims almost always look sick, if they are a good style.

To those who put the chrome handles on their 6......Did you go with the stick-on chrome covers or the atual chrome replacement handles. I've seen both of them. I'm a little hesitate with putting anything with an adhesive on my car. If it fades, breaks or gets pitting then you will probably have a hard time taking it off without having residue.

Midani,

It may be more expensive, but simply purchase 2 sets. The door handles are the same size for each door, so use the two rear driver's side handles as your two driver's side handles and the two rear passenger's side handles as your two passenger's side handles. Then either sell the other 4 to some stupid kid or use them as back scratchers. Either way, this will solve your problem.

AHHHHH, lol. I like your solution Awaken6. Just don't sell the incomplete set to anyone on this forum.
