anyone with shaved door handles?

so i was doing a quick ps of shaving the door handles and i have to say i think im sold on the idea.

it looks so much better than those cheap ass door handles we have now.

I was at the carwash yesterday and there was a cts coupe there and im like, wtf why dont we have door handles like that? I know, i know. sacrafices must be made.

Has anyone did this yet, on any car, and if so how much does it generally cost for something like this.

I would have to say that that would make a sweet mod. I don't like the door handles myself and plan to chrome mine. Just want to see a PS before I go forward.

Great idea!

if you dont like them, why would u chrome them. That would just make them stick out even more.
i believe someone sell chrome handle covers, that should give u an idea how it looks.

I have had a few vehicles with shaved doors. They are great and I loved them. Status Customs built a bagged red Camaro with shaved doors. Looks bad ass! Ill see if I can find pictures.

Notice what cars GM puts them on...

CTS Coupe.

Corvette.

Now consider the price points of both cars.

There's your answer.

is your friend. There is a thread started by JusticePete about the Pedders car, which has shaved handles. IIRC, I posted a link there to a hotrod shop that supplies a kit to do it.

Yep. and I think there is a over ride button in the trunk should you lose the fob.

On the Storm there was a hidden push button that would open it up. It can also be done by remote.

Great idea!
I've been waiting for someone to sell chrome door handles for my SS.
GM makes an accessory chrome door handle kit for the Chev Aveo. Per my dealers parts dept, the stock handles are not the same so they cannot be used on the Camaro even though they look identical.

Tiny down side to shaved handles is that some tracks wont let you race.

Is it just me or does anyone else think the cts and corvette do not count as shaved. Shaved means theres nothing there at all and requires a device to perform what a handle would. With the vette theres still a cut out in the door that requires u to grab it apply pressure to open it. So doesnt that still count as a door handle haha
