    you aint even gotta have solenoids, dude. take a brake cable from a BMX bike, attach it to the door frame, and run the cable to the handle. then run the cable to the fenderwell, and attach it to some sort of lever (i used a gas door release latch off of an old junked truck) in the wheel well, upwhere noone can see it. works like a charm, and is a hellovalot more reliable than poppers, and cheaper too.

    Wish I had a bitch. :(

    lol

    I don't think it's legal to do it in some states...i dunno though.

    It looks good for show, but for a daily driver wouldn't it be a pain in the fuckin a? :unsure:

    edit: i mean shaving the door handles, not your bitch. :lol:

    Seeing how we own a custom body shop i have the upper hand on this! heres the trick.. take out your stock door handle.. trace it on a piece of metal thin enough to bend and work with! get it to conform.. than epoxy or welded in.. there is a small lip on the door that will hold it when epoxed! Than use some filler and block it!

    For poppers i reccomend BallsRodandcustoms.com they are the best! And for added securtity hide a switch just in case~!

    as for a daily drive its that much easier! Think about it... if you dont have a remote door locks you have to manualy open it with a key than lift the handle!!
    Now when they are shaved press the botton va la!!! youve done it all in one!

    Actually, It looks good to me, and it defenitly nice to have not usin a key, I kinda wired it wrong so channel 2 opens the passenger door then a second later it'll open the driver door, channel 3 and 4 open the drivers door, but that ok, since It's not like im going to have a passenger jumo in without me,

    O and don't have welding skills so I just fiberglassed it up, then some plastic filler, it looks straight and even with the body though.

    And yes my bitch is shaved tool!

    Beleive me I get alot of attention off them even without my car being painted right now.

    I've never gotten pulled over or had anything said to me in new jersey or pennsylvania so I guess it's legal.

    Well, im going for show and go, just waitin for the turbo for the go. Anyway your friend is a jackass tell him to just buy some new doors and never even touch a shaved door again. If i ever loose my remaote, I'm fucked because i never installed my back up switch and I shaved the hatch lock too along with all the moldings and license plate holder, It looks ok but really needs a paint job. The blue and white primer isn't workig well together. Anyway I love the shaved look except i kinda ghetto rigged my door poppers with wat TOO MUCH jb weld.
