What's under the rubber on my doorhandles?

Does anyone know what's under the rubber on brava handles? The rubber on mine is perishing and looking awful and i was wondering if there was a sprayable surface underneath?

What you actually want is a set of Marea handles. They're solid and paintable.

I realise that Marea handles are perfec6t for this however, living where i live on the west coast of wales, there aren't many scrappies hence they tend to be very expensive, in some cases more expensive than it would be to buy parts new!
I was just wondering what the handles were like under the rubber and would they look ok if sprayed?

Re: What's under the rubber on my doorhandles?

If the deal doesn't go down with the marea handles I'd be glad to take them off your hands.

And with regards to the "whats under the rubber" question, i can answer that quickly. Its horrible under that rubber mate believe me. The rubber on my brava's handles is peeling off, and its horrible. Besides, without the rubber on the handles you'll be left with space between the handle and the door (as expected from fiat, its not a precision fit).

Honestly, if i were you i'd hit the marea handles now and have them swapped out. Just my two cents though
