Black Grill and Trim?

I'd like to get rid of the front brushed chrome grill for a blacked-out grill, as well as change the door handles from chromed to black.

Anyone know an aftermarket company that sells quality products like this for the MDX?

I'm in the process of this as well.

Im thinking plastidip for the grill/badges and a product like 3M's Di-Noc for the door handles.

I called a local place that does car wraps, to see if they would wrap the handles. The wanted to charge me $500.00 because he wouldn't do it unless he took the handles off the car.

Plastidip the Grill and maybe wrap the handles. I wouldn't plastidip the Handles. I did my grill & Emblems and it's durable and looks great.

It's a DIY project. I've seen people mention home improvement stores or dipyourcar.com

Black Grill and Trim?

You can get the pd at the Home Depot or Ace
I did the grill, chrome trim around windows, rear bumper and even door handles. Heck, I did the chrome part of the running boards.
The pd is coming off the door handles, the problem is that you can't get it in the backside if the handles are in place. But at $8 can, I can afford to repaint them in a few months again.
