Scratched interior door handle

So i recently travelled from Edinburgh to Dorset and back with my mate for a stag weekend and ubfortunately he managed to make his interior door handle look like someone attacked it with a saw with his watch on the 900 miles of driving i did.

At work now but will post pictures when im back home.

Would i be able to sand it down and polish it or am i better of buying a new unit?

Would recommend sanding it down and wrapping/PlastiDip/Spraying both door handles to match them up?

Hi Jason. Any news on the door handle? Did you refurb It or replace with new 🤔

I ended up just leaving it for the moment ,I'm going to probably end up buying a new one online and have a go at fitting it myself when i can really be bothered.

They seem to be selling them for really cheap on ebay.

To be honest Jason I think that I would buy a new handle as well. When It's done please post a couple of pics showing the handle before and after the change over 👍

Ok so I'm reviving this thread for some advice , I bought this recently but I'm not the most savvy person when it comes to anything remotely technical so from anyone that knows would you say it's a doable job for me or should I pay someone who knows what they are doing?

If so any idea what I can expect to pay?

I'm also getting a bit of rattle from that same door card so maybe have a look at that at the same time?

Hi Jason.

It entirely depends on how confident you feel about doing It yourself. Personally speaking though, I'm not very handy with cars so I would take the car to my local mechanic who only charges about £25 per hour for labour compared to Suzuki's £80 or more. I'm sure that there are many people on this forum who would feel confident about doing this job themselves to save money. But like I've already said, personally speaking I wouldn't 🤔

Is it metal or plated? Got to be worth sanding and polishing before considering replacement!
