I was just wondering if anyone had shaved door handles on their RSX. I searched around and couldnt find anything on this site. Anyone have it done to their car or have pictures of it? I think it would make the RSX look even more sleek.

i know someone that has it done to his civic and i think it looks much cleaner than stock. how much would it cost to buy the kit, which is around 200 bucks i think, and have it installed and painted as well? anyone have an idea?

I shaved the door handles and 3rd brake light over two yrs ago. The car is in the shop as we speak, in which they shaved the rain gutters, window washer nozles, lower body lines, and are molding the kit. As well as the complete color change:laughing:

The rain gutters is that black plastic strip that runs from the front to rear window on the roof...

Lower body lines run around the entire car, about a 8" from bottom of the car...

I installed the setup myself since I do all my own work... Not only do I save money, I know its done properly! I hate other people touching my car.

I used the 50lb solenoid kit from www.autoloc.com Don't use any other kit on the market, they are crap... I speak from experience since this is my 4th vehicle with shaved handles, in which this is the first car I have had no problems with, and have been on over 2yrs.

If you install the spring loaded poppers, it will kick the door out about 3". I didn't install the poppers, so they only pop out a good 3/4"... Just enough to grab ahold of and pull open. Ease of use? Don't get any easier than having the door pop open with the click of a button on the remote. :p
