The 1995 coupe I recently purchased has a few defects for me to work on. Installing a new emblem on the hood and the rear gas lid helped add a little sparkle to the car. The door handles have a few scratches which detract from its appearance, so I purchased some rubber sticky-backed door step tread from my local Mac's hardware store. I cut it down to 1.25 x 5.5 inches and stuck it on the door handle openings. It will prevent future scratches from happening too, I hope. This is the rubber tread. I had to go to a couple places to find it because most of the places had the tread that is more like black sandpaper and I didn't want that on my door handles. I saw the static cling ones in a couple of Vette parts & accessory catalogs, but was afraid it might come off too easily, so I opted for the sticky tread stuff. See attached picture.

Awesome.  Have seen some of the "cling" ones, but this, not only looks like it will last, it looks like it belongs there.
