Shaved Doors

I want to shave my door handles, but I don't want to pay a shop out of the ass when I can do it myself.. xD what would be the best way to go about this, along with any tools/supplies I would need? any help is appreciated, thanks in advance!

I wouldn't cheap out on this. And pj a shaved door has no handles. Instead you have a remote to pop open the doors. My friend had them on his s10 and the remote stopped working and he got stuck out of his truck. It looks good, but if you cheap out it won't and you will have problems. I don't know the whole process of doing it thoigh

Work!! To do it correctly you will have to cut out the indention. Or disassemble your door and try to bang it out! The electrical will be easy, body work will be a nightmare!!

I'll probably have a friend whos good with body work help cover where the door handle was. My thought also was to have a little switch in my wheel well that unlocks and opens them.
