Handle accents

Saw some Cruze chrome accented handles on eBay (GM accessory part) and had Lupe @ River City Creations paint the chrome section CGM to match my stripes. 10 minutes to install both sides and I have a pair left over to boot! The pics are dark in my garage, it's crappy out here in MA :(

How do the old door handles come off? Do you have to take the inner door panel off?

Little plug in the door (3rd pic from top sorta shows it, above the "GM" emblem). Pops out and you unscrew a T20 torx while pulling the handle out. Couldn't be easier!

I'll takes better pics this weekend when the sun shines in Mass......

Exact same fit Cruze vs. Camaro. I was lucky: summit white's offered in the Cruze so all I did was have the chrome part painted.

Here's a few distance shots (before a wash). Subtle mod but I really like the accent.

I'll never give up my day job for one in photography

That's cool. Nice idea! I'll have to take a look and see if I can come up with something to match my car.

Sorry- I'm confused,
I'm interested in a CHROME outside handle for my '10 SS.
Is there a chrome cruze handle that fits the Camaro door ?
If so where can I purchase a pair, part numbers ?
Thanks.

Thats what myself and the OP bought (I actually bought his leftover ones). These are the premium door handles off of the Chevy Cruze. The OP painted the center chrome part of his, but I left mine chrome. The outside is painted, but the inside is a chrome insert.

I left the middle/inside of mine chrome. I wanted a handle that wasn't fully chrome and this fit the bill perfectly for me.

You can find them on ebay...just search for Chevrolet cruze door handles, and then filter your search to OEM parts. Can't really get just two handles...have to get all four which will run around 80 or 90 bucks

Ok, I really want a pair of these handles in all chrome for my '10 SS.
On eBay they show the part #20919351 @ $84.00 in summit white but
they are not "all chrome".
I hope someone smarter than me can find the part number for a pair of chrome Cruze handles.
Thanks,
KMPrenger: Thanks for the great DIY instructions.

Not sure about replacement handles, but there are chrome coverings you can buy to place over your stock handles if that is what you want. Usually pretty easy to find as well. Just search on ebay for 2010 Camaro door handles and scroll through the results. You are sure to find some chrome caps for the stock handles.
