    smoothed doors

    ive now decided that i like the look of smoothed doors lol. not sure whats involved though i know i would need a door popper of somesort but not sure exactly what is needed to smooth the handles off properly.

    not seen many threads on this so i would like some help please.

    any1 got any pics of smoothed handles/doors aswell as theres not many around.

    price isnt an issue right now so not bothered about how much it will all cost.

    thanks

    like this u mean? its simple, just take out the handles, weld a piece of metal in the hole, take of bump strips, grind down the little pins then smooth and paint. job done.

    could be mounted in a few places in the door shut, holes behind the bump strips are easily welded up, best way is to remove door cards, put a piece of plate behind the hole then weld it then it can be ground smooth and will still have strength to it.
