Shaved Door Handles

was digging around online for some things that I could do to my car without completely breaking the bank. The shaved door handles popped up in my head and I really like the idea of them. I was wondering if anyone here has done it, and if so what size solenoids did you guys use? have to decide that so i dont get a solenoid too small. If i can manage to get this done fairly soon, which the only problem I can see is the gap in the door where the door handles are going to be removed, but that's why I have someone who works at a body shop in my family haha. Let me know what you guys think and if anyone has experience with this. THanks!!

If you decide to shave the handles, make sure you get HIGH quality equipment. I had a friend who went cheap when he did his truck and in the cold his doors would not open, the solenoids wouldnt work below about 35 degrees.

oh trust me, there will be much research done before any purchasing happens. I will get estimates on filling in and repainting the doors, and all the solenoids. The problem is going to be that my car is a sedan, so I am going to have to do it on all four doors, but I will have to wire a custom remote so that i can open them all on one remote instead of carrying two remotes.

I think they sell 4 position remotes for people who want to have multiple remote options.
