$210 doesnt seem that bad to me? keep ion mind when it comes to paint and body work, you get what you pay for, "Do it nice not twice". trust me i learned the hard way!

my best quote was 125 a door for shaving...so 210 out the door is good. Does that include any way to open the door from the outside like poppers?

hmm, i dont think so. but i dont want poppers on my rear doors. i rarely use them so there is no real point. I could just open it from the inside IF someone were to ride in the backseat....

so $210 is pretty good then guys? my friends body shop gave me that price and i know they do a good job cause ive seen his car. ill talk my way down...lol

how would you open it from inside?

youd have to unlock it then reach to the back and pull the door handle.

seems stupid...get a remote.

$2K for shaving 2 doors is insane.... .there is noway it should cost that much, even for 4 doors. for 2k it better know that im walking up to the door and open itself, close itself once i sit down and say "welcome" in a nice soothing voice.

doesnt seem stupid to me cause i never use the back doors... and im the kind of person who doesnt care if i have to reach in and pull the back handle if I do need to use the doors.... plus its saving me some money having no poppers....

you can always add popers later if you want, If your going to shave the back why not do all 4....dont you think it might look odd with just the back done?

i know your going for the xenon kit, and so i j/thought i'd give u my .02, in my opinion the xenon kit looks good with the door handles and sidemoldings still THERE. i was about to shave everything, but i decided not to, cuz it seems to go better, but like i said, thas j/my .02.

Anyways, yea you can always get door poppers put in later. But if i were you i'd j/get all 4 doors done at once, cuz only having the rear doors shaved will look odd.. And plus he migh cut u a better deal to get all 4 done at once..
