i'm gunna shave my handles but i blow at weldin and body work! so i'm gunna take the handles off and cut out around where they were myself. the question is how much you think it would cost me to get it welded and smoothed out by a shop?

its a first gen blazer if that makes a difference:thumbup:

on the first gens the handle and the key hole are seperate so once you take them off you have a hole from the key hole and a indent where the handle was. so you cut around the indent-tay-tion [i cant spell] and key whole so its just all one rectangle then tack weld in a peice....get what i'm sayin? or is that the wrong way to do it?

oooh, ok. yeah, you can do that. i think ive seem them where individual patch panles were made, but that would be a pain in the ass...

bondo will not fill a hole that big correctly.you need to use as much shettmetal as possible.
