The SEM product is excellent, though technique is very important. I rubbed all surfaces down with isopropyl alcohol and a microfiber cloth prior to painting. And my spraying technique is several light mistings which gives excellent results. Should work fine on the door handles, though an adhesion promoter (spray) might be a good idea for these high use areas.
Like any painted surface, it will scratch/chip with abuse. All the cars Ive ever redyed have been garaged, weekend pleasure craft, so I cant really comment on prolonged use and sun exposure. Ive never been a fan of Amour All type dressing on the interior, so a light dusting is all I do. I did both of Phil's Trans Ams this way, and theyve held up reasonable well.

I did a complete blue interior back in 04 and sold the car to a friend of mine in spring 05. Its a daily driver for him tho he retired three years ago so it only got two summers of Texas sun exposure before it got to stay indoors at home during the day. Still, he's put about 30K miles on it and its holding up beautifully. Wish I could say the same for his exterior, but the nose is all rock-chipped now and he shut the garage door on the rear bumper. He's got two kids still in college so he's holding off any repaint till they are through and the bleeding stops.Phil D.
