Fixed the interior door handle scratches!!!

O.k. I couldn't take the scuffed up interior door scratches. It was such an eyesore. Whenever someone would get it my car they'd rave about the interior then say what happened to your door handles and steering wheel? I know it looks a bit ricey it still looks better than the scratches. Since I've painted all my interior pieces in my Civic back in the day I know this fix will work. Doesn't flow with the interior but I couldn't take it anymore. What was Infiniti thinking?! Will do the trimming around the steering wheel and rear door handles on Monday. Just wanted to test out how things would look first. Tell me what you guys/gals think... PM me if you want to see more pics.

Nice to see you take the initiative but not feeling it looks as you said "ricey" and not for this car, though its a good idea, i suggest you doing this with a matte type black the gloss is what i dont like. Still good work for what it is.

Thanks Kool yarr, I didn't even think about matte black! That would probably match alot better too. O.k. I will do the rear door handles in matte black and see how it turns out. Then decide which one to go with before painting the steering wheel trim. Good thinking buddy!!!

By the way, I'm sooooo loving the roof spoiler!!! Thinking of molding the ravespec rear spats, what do you think? Too much? Or do wheels first before touching the body? As always, your input is appreciated.

I remember these things being about $100- new.
Replace those. No offense, but that looks awful. (A for effort though)

My '09 G37 has fixed this issue .. they use a textured abs plastic (not scratchable) in place of the soft/scuffable trim piece in the G35...

it's a bit cheesy, but it takes care of the issue

Isn't there a company that makes aftermarket overlays (e.g. wood/brushed alum/etc) to glue onto those areas?

Really? Well I'm sure they'll fit the G35 sedan that big of a difference. I'll take a trip to the dealership and see what bright idea they've come up with now. Thanks PeterUbers!

Nice to see that you dont take offense on even some negative feedback, but im sure matte black would look much better and i would go with wheels before doing any more body work as without rims all your detail oriented body work would not stand out, just my $0.02

Sorry to say, but that looks horrible! The paint is way to glossy and there is a LOT of orange peel. Do over! Those piece brand new are only about $25 each. If your steering wheel is not painted Stop, and rethink. You will regret it later.

Did you prep it at all?

Sanded it down good, put on an adhesion promoter and do it matte black. The results will be much better.

A+ on the effort and how well you took the replies.

As mentiond before. Infiniti fixed the issue with mid 08+ models.

Try to get those and you'll have no problem.

I haven't looked at the newer models but can you use the new trims with the old ones.

I like the feel of the rubber-like material in my '08 sedan, even though it does scratch easy!

I actually found a simple way to remove the scratches on the door handle -- your finger!!! Basically, just rub the scratches off and they disappear like an eraser. I rub firmly in one direction, as opposed to rubbing back and forth. Not sure if it matters, but going in one direction just feels safer (like it won't ruin the material with too much friction).

Try it!!!
