get some ultra strong double-sided tape to hold the side strip on - call coventrys and ask for the strongest s**t they've got! the roll cost me about $50 from memory, and i did all 4 with 2 strips, and have quite a bit left :wink:

Get the handles stripped and repainted and keep the polish up to it. Clear coats always tend to peal if not trated with a polish and left in the sun all the time. My car is always treated with Dri Wash & Gaurd and has not had a problem with the clear pealing. it is ten Years this year and still looks like it came out of the show room.
