too shave or not to shave is the question.. well here is what we are doing. right now my car is in the shop getting repainted a different color so when it was sanded and primored we shaved a few things such as the rain gutters on the roof, side moldings, emblems on the rear. and we put a full bomex bodykit on it. now i am wondering before we paint it if i should shave my door handles for i think it would be cool since it can be used as theft deterance in a way since its a little harder to break into the car if you dont want to break the window but most of all i am just wondering how many of you think that will look good.

if ur going full show car.. shave em.. if u wanna race later keep em on.. same here.. they won't let u on the track if you have shaved door handles.. but i dunno.. i kinda like door handles.. maybe shaved key holes(4dr rear handles) and disabling the manual door locks are a better idea..

scary scenario: what if there's a big dog chasing you and u have to run into your car for safety.. by the time u hit the "open door" button.. its too late.. then.. you try to jump on top of your car(no rain gutters)u slide off right over onto the other side.. and then the dog eats you!

I hear that you can't safety your car w/ shaved handles tho...in my neck of the woods anyway.

hehe sonic i like what you said but what if the dog bites your leg off while your trying to open your door with the door handle.

i kinda wanted to build my engine as well so im not too keen on shaving my handles now since well.. i wanna race on the tracks since i keep it off the street, but thats just me.

so now on the other factor.. does anyone know any door handle modifications you can do such as different style or chrome handles i dont know.. something clean not too tacky... ideas? anyone?
