that looks really good colour coded, how do you get the handles off to paint them and also what proccess do you use to get a good finish when painting?

Is that with your rub strips colour coded?

Too do the door handles is very easy; take the door cards off then, remove the membrane, remove the one bolt holding the window slider, then remove two bolts holding the handle remove and disonnect the yellow clip and the handles yours, then use a punch to remove the 2 bars in the handle remove the spring, and the yellow clip. Pull the rubber stops out prep and spray. Then do the reverse.

Stumbled across the image of your lovely face..... :)
Just had the scary thought that if I said, "Ugly mug", your fist would come flying through my screen and bop me on the nose. I dont think I would want to get on your bad side!!

Hehe back on point I see....
Try the middle A pillar between the doors. Should be on a small silver piece of metal. Or alternatively, post a picture of your car and people should be able to tell your right away.
