I agree, fully shaved I'd prefer to keep the door handles though

Are you thinking about doing this Geoff?

Yeah I am thinking about getting shaved but not the door handles.

The difference between half and full is that they have taken away the centre strip on the door and body in the top pic, and then they have taken it away on the front and rear bumper on the bottom pic also.

I'd be afraid to smooth out the door handles, if the solenoids fail then you're f'ed in the a

Hi Geoff,
This is MBlands car, it was in MR2only, i have the mag if you want to have a read of the full details.

I looked into doing this on the MR2 too, as i had it door handles removed on my old car,
I only got caught out once, but it was a hatchback.

The door handles are easy to do, according to the painter the hard bit is the side strips.
I would have though it would be simple to take off the strips n fill the gap, as you have a straight edge either side. The problem arises with the door being banged close. The filler will probably loosen over time. The painter said you would really need to weld in a metal plate and smooth it before painting. In his own words, "it will be an expensive vanity project" hehe!

I still think i would like to do it, but i suppose it would make sense if you had the
car in the painters and were getting alot of work done.

I have been meaning to drop a PM to MBland to see if he went the filler or the welding route. Would be interesting to find out, if you drop him a PM let us know the answer

Personally, i would do the strips but not the door handles.
I was looking at possibly fitting rear Camry door handles, so there would be no door lock, need to verify if they fit 100% first...
Just my thoughts,
T

I think Fully shaved looks better.

I'd agree with B4ss on the filler etc - risk of cracks etc is there. Although,I've seen plenty of Broder rear spats blended in and no cracks.

Is it legal to remove door handles for the NCT ?

haha would be a bit of a laugh at the test centre, they can barely cope with having an engine in the back most of the time
