I looked into shaved door kits. Most expert places said that I would have to replaced the body filling every two years. You can guess why I haven't had it done .

when you shave the door handles off you remove them entierly from the

outside of the car, there is some welding and some body work involved



any type of custom body work later on down the road may need to be

touched up, factor in that alot of people who do it are hacks to begin with

and the time frame in between touch ups could be much less.



are you sure you know what shaved door handles mean?

there is no "kit" for the whole thing, only universal kits that

allow you to open the doors being as there is no longer handles on the

outside, the removal of the handles itself will be a custom job.

rob the proper way would be to weld on a metal "patch" and sand it down smooth to the door, therefore negating the need for body filler, but also maknig a paintjob necessary, correct?
