Flush door handles

Postby Raver » 12 Feb 2007, 20:13

Was just wondering what peoples opinions were on these, the kind you find on corsa or calibra's that sit flush with the door. My cars hopfully (funds permitting) goin to the body shop soon and i was goin to look into having some fitted along with the fuel filler being smoothed.

Or am i just ruining the look of an old skool car with new parts?

Personally I wudnt like it, the chrome door handles on my car anyway set the side profile of the car off. Its just my opinion though

I reckon it would be cool. I plan on having the locks removed at least.

yeah have already removed mine, but had the idea as my mate had it done to an old nova of his, planning on flushing the filler hole too and routing the exhaust so it exits through the sill aswell, can have the car abit lower on the back then hopefully with the help of some flared arches. :lol: Cant wait to get it sideways.

think me an u will have to meet up topi an get some old skool dirfting on the go.

Would probably look ok, especially on a dark car if they are colour coded. Not sure yours would suit the chrome handles.

Have a isolated (with diodes) power terminal hidden somewhere out of sight but convenent enough to access with booster cables, that only opens the doors, or provides power to do so. :wink:

Ive got a fibreglass bonnet held down with bonnet pins so access to the battery is not a problem.
