Mine is silver, also. I added the chrome door handles. Did you get the round piece that covers the button you push to open the door? I also added S/S nerf bars, and chrome tail light covers. I was thinking about the mirrors, and after seeing yours, I may do this also. I also plan to add the door scuff plates. I also added the small grill that mounts in the front bumper, to cover the transmission cooler. It matches my grill inserts. I do not know if this is available for the export front bumper. Nice ride!

Thanks for the compliments.

Yep, got the buttons to but I wasn't finished at the time I made the picture
You have a pick of the lower grill inserts you installed.

I believe there were at least 3 styles to choose from, but I wanted the one that matched my stock grill. There are some sets that have 5 pieces, but I chose the easy route!

Did the chrome door handles fit tight to the door, or is there a small gap where you can still see the black? It is hard to tell from your pictures. Thank you.

A real small gap is between the door and doorhandle shell

Mine are that way also. I think that there is probably one manufacturer, sold under many trade names. Thank you for the quick reply.
