Gonna post here and the other forum. Poll results will decide what I do. The car is not going to stay this color, and I also want to change out the front door handles to something different. I can't decide so I'll let you guys do it for me.

My attempt at a pshop

i dont think shaving just the rears looks right. either shave them all or none at all. if you want to do something amazing with your handles get some like on the aston martins. that would be SICK

i say no. i dont think it cleans up the look at all, and like audisport12 said, it would look uneven.

Thanks for the compliment. I'm only thinking of doing it since the car is getting worked on. I'm going widebody, with a couple other bodymods.

Well it is pretty weird that we're both doing the same project at the same time. (widebody) I just decided not to make a thread because it would be so similar to Rich's. My other plan is to re-paint the car porsche teal with anthricite pillars and roof. Either that color or the BMW sage green

I like the look of the shaved rears and no key holes up front.

jw, how would you get into the rear doors then? lol

im torn. on one hand i think it will give the car an uneven look. but more so it will give it the coupe look while still rettaining the sedan functionality..

i say shave the rears, and update to the 99.5+ handles.. but for the drivers door, use a left rear doors handle. to get rid of the key hole, for a complete clean look

Open them from the inside. Who really wants to ride in the back anyways? Extra passengers just weigh you down. [:p]

Although it may seem a little "Pimp my Ride" but they do make door poppers. When you unlock the car, it pops the door open.

Shave the rear doors completely. Then have someone make you a rear seat delete setup out of fiberglass and put a full roll cage back there. Expand your trunk a little into the former backseat so you gain a little more room for a relocated battery or a fuel cell. race car FTW!

Actually, our door handles are unobtrusive enough that they don't look bad the way they are.

dude, i like it a lot. i think it looks pretty good. i dont see the uneven-ness you guys are thinking of.

i vote shave the rear doors. a4rob you have a roll cage, is your back seat even usable? just weld the rear doors shut and fill in the seams.

I'm not sure how I feel about it. On one hand I really like the shaved rears, but feel like it is a tad out of place. I dunno....

I considered that also, but I still open the rear doors to put crap in the back seat. Stuff like golf clubs or shotguns [;)]

i saw a white b5 with the shaved rear handles and welded the rear doors shut and made everything fluish so it looked like a two door kinda looked awkward but to each is own

Eventually my car will be a coupe but my situation does not allow for that right now. That has been in the plans for awhile.

Mine didnt come out nearly as good as yours, how did you select so cleanly??? (I tried to make it all black)

Tifun
10-22-2007, 08:39 PM
I used the polygonal lasso tool and select everything individually. then I merge it all together. Of I make a background copy first as soon as I open it. The I hit ctrl+U then check the colorize box and move the colors around as needed. I spent less then 10 minutes on that pic btw. You get pretty quick after doing it sooo much...pm me if you want my psd. i can send it to you instead of hijacking the hell out of this thread.
