Not off the top of my head.
Why do you want to do that? If your remote died or gets broken, you're not getting into your car. Ryuc, a member here, had a kit on his 4th gen. It's hard as hell to get it done right without seeing the outline of where the handles used to be.

Plus too the metal on the doors are so thin, even with it just sitting in direct sunlight they will crack. I've never seen a car with a shaved kit either door handles or licence plate kit, without cracks and having to go back and repair routinely.

Its a fad, just like those chrome fender flares a few years ago. Okay I guess you can't compare to that. As shaved door handles and stuff like that are truly nice looking but I think more on a classic car or hot rod IMO.

Shaved door handles on a car with no side moldings is so HOT.

I havent looked at many kits for ludes but DO NOT go with autolock they suck.

And if done right it wont crack or look like crap.

Well I have only seen cars at shows, so who knows if they did the job right one would think so. But every car or truck I have seen had a visible line or crack. Even the owner's said if they had a chance to do it again they wouldn't.

Tom shaved his GTP and a few other cars and there is absolutely NO visible line at all. it was done correctly with replacement metal and smoothed out with filler.

If you know what you are doing you could make it look flawless.

I say go for it it would look good to me. Get a good kit even a universal one. Only 2 thing i would do. 1st.have a pro weld in a metal cover for the hole the handle leaves and the paint stuff. 2nd get a hide a key and a key for the trunk hide it some wear under the car and wire in a switch to one of the doors that way if the key remote went dead of broke you can still get in the car.

Yeah I think the trick is to do exactly like you said use replacement metal, and tack weld all the way around so the metal doesn't get to hot and warp. Then grid the weld down and use like filler putty. Maybe all I have seen is budget jobs.

DON'T DO IT!!! i know they look seriously hot but my friend did it to his mx5 and after a while they stopped working for no reason at all, he replaced the solenoid and everything but still they won't open the door and the emergency button doesn't work either! basically he has to break into his car with the aerial everytime and i had his car for a few days, what a pain in the a$$

I disagree. I say do it if you have the money and the want for it. If they are installed PROPERLY and the battery for your remote is kept up; they can be problem free for the life of the car. isn't ironic that BOTH poppers went bad on the accord? sounds like the equipment was bad from the beginning or it was not installed correctly. As far as the emergency button not working, again either bad poppers or there was a problem with the alarm brain itself b/c that circuit is hardwired. The brain should be under life-time warranty and so should the poppers if installed by a legit company/shop. Get some good ones and take the time to install them correctly and there should be no problems. I'm sure shaved door handles end up successful more often than not otherwise it would not be a very popular mod.

I agree with Mdtdnb and 99PreludeSh more with 99PreludeSh not b/c she done bodywork a good bit but b/c she has boobies The parts to the poppers and pity simple a servo to pull a cable for the door latch and a popper most of the time the lil computer the the remote tells to use the servo mess up b/c it crappy or the cable get loosen just enough to pull the latch.

If you simply must do it,why not have a small button to unlatch the door, like on this fourth gen

Would be a good idea but you would have to hide it and not let ppl see you get in it unless you got info on how he/she locks it up.

Key word I guess you paid a professional to do it. I guess most of the work I have seen have been DIY.

I agree about those buttons there, kind of defeats the purpose of having a nice clean shaved door handle. Then you have this ugly looks like the old style door locks (inside the car) on a 1982 Ford Granada.

PWNED!

Key is doing stitch welds to control heat and replacement metal as mentioned. Go to a mini truck show and you will see quality shave jobs left and right....or just look at my Dakota minus the handles, tailgate handle, 3rd brake light, antenna, and molded roll pan.

Re: Shaved Door Handles

wow the truck does look good, so you did the third brake light. You must not have state inspections where you are from. Because here in VA you would need that third brake light to pass. Looks good

ACTUALLY...the truck is from Illinois which is a no-inspection state,but we won't even open that can of worms. Missouri DOES require them, but if you know the right people they will let things slide.

Re: Shaved Door Handles

I'm really thinking about shaving my door handles to...

on a 5th gen it would look great because the lines of the car are so angular, there really isn't any curve to it...super clean

I say go for it, F*ck it, I'll go for it, we can be the only 2 cool people on the forum ;-P

oh, another thing I heard is that if you get poppers that are rated for a weight higher than the actual weight of the door they will hold up better...
