I've read where some owners weren't too sure about whether to paint their lock kits. I used TouchUpDirect.com and got very good results. I won't be installing the lock kit until about April. I'm sure the paint match is very close. I'll know better in the sunlight, etc.

Looks good. I am sure both options will end up looking great, either leaving black or painting. Your are the first to show that painting is a viable option. Any issues getting good paint spread under the flip handle? Any runs/drips?

I disassembled the unit. No runs or drips but the paint did get a little thick at the back of the recess. I gave it a full day to dry before clearcoating it.

Maybe a little better focus.

Looks great! I'm really thinking about painting my handle as well, any chance you could hold up the handle to your truck and snap a photo?

Looks good. Begs the question how it will hold up after long scorching summer heat and frozen salt filled winter.

Looks good to me! I am sold and just ordered deep scarlet pearl. The black looks ok but the paint looks better.
