Well i am keeping my s-10 after all. So i figured i would start work on it next week. I was wondering how hard is it to shave the dor handles and install one of those pop lock kits?? Me and my boy were gonna do it. He has shaved a couple cars before but i was just gonna see if there is anything i should know about my truck, cause i dont' think he has shaved any trucks yet? Just any opinion or useful info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

P.S. i drive a 00 extreme

S-10's are a little tough since the doors need a little slam to get them shut - make sure you don't go cheap on the poppers. Or you could do what my buddy did and steal the handles off a car that has the handles on the edge of the door and that has the same contour as yours. But if you want just smooth - buy some bondo and go to town.

get 50lbs poppers, and your buddy should be able to do it pretty easy cause its pretty flat where your handles are so it will be no biggie.

I think you should spend the extra cash and get Autoloc poppers. But u get whatever your wallet can handle. As for shaving the handles this is what u do
1) Take door handles out and cut the whole area out where its not flat sheet metal
2)grind to bare metal all around the outer edge of the area that u cut out
3) Find two pieces of metal that are just a little bit bigger the the hole that u cut out Scuff them up and spray the pieces of metal and the door (where its bare metal) with weld thru primer
4) Get a mig welder and have some water near u with a rag. Have someone with a flat objet or a screw driver hold the metal in place and just tac weld the piece in always remember to cool it Make a complete weld all the way across
5) Then grind it down with a hard disk grinder and your first coat fill with metal 2 metal/sand/bondo/sand/prime/sand/ base coat then clear and its done Hope that helped u out a little

whatever you do make sure you DONT weld up the handle hole UNTIL you make sure that your poppers are wired correctly and they work correctly.
after this is done then fill the handle hole and do the body work.
