I am not quite sure what you are asking, but if you are referring to just the inset around the outside door handle, then Yes, it is painted the same color as the body.

i think we're on the same page, but i'll rephrase my question just to make sure.  i'm talking about the outside door handle itself, in particular the recessed rectangular section right in the middle.  Most of the pictures i've seen make it appear to be painted the body color, as does your picture, so i presume this is the case?

thanks, Mike

I see what you are saying now.... yes and no.  Yes, it is the same as the body color, but no it is not paint.  It was actually an option on the cars for "Door Handle Tape".  It is more or less a decal that goes in the (pretty much like tape as the name denotes).  The GM RPO code was "D92 - DR HAND TAPE" and it can be found on the build sheet of the car.
