We understand. He was going to paint them but he had to tow that POS blown up ruZZian tank off his lawn first cause it was really wrecking the vibe in the neighborhood and the barbecued rashists were starting to stink up the place. Слава Україні!

Handles odered by my friends for his car. I'm just experienced in 3d scanning, CAD ets. He use it already half-year. Of course it's quite short period. I'm waiting pictures from him, an then will share here
Could you scan the door handle static piece? That way we can get the mounting depth of each fastening location for future use.
I was thinking of modelling a new handle design entirely.

They were never painted, they were molded in the car color. Something painted, The paint I do not think will last but for that price it beats having a busted door handle or 2

.
My be. But the handle which I got for 3d scanning was painted in dark green metallic

I see what you need. I would do it, but don't have access to scanner now because of war. I hope to reach it, but not in nearest days...

I had this blow out late last month.
Would have loved to have a 3d printed replacement (or metal parts).
But, I just bought the cheap (pre-painted) handle from China.

Replaced yesterday. What a pain.

Then why do they sell them in colors, I presumed based on having to order in a color they were molded in that color and appear to be that color everywhere you can look. But since i have a black car, I would never know.

Yes, for a nearly failproof replacement option this would be necessary. Even if the pull-handle part was cast or billet metal the base assembly that holds the main pivot hinge and entire door handle together, which is also plastic, can also break. In most of the photos the pull-handle is what breaks, usually along the arms, but the little tabs that are moulded into the door handle assembly that form the main hinge connection can also crack and break off:







I'd guess that this type of failure would become more common after making the pull-handle part out of metal as the weakest link would then be the plastic assembly base and these hinge tabs.
