just wondering if anyone knows how hard it is to do shaved door handles and install door poppers on a gbody, and what weight poppers would be good?? :cheesy:
all of the components i have looks similar to spall. might be spall but dont know. the only thing that does'nt look the same is the popper.Originally posted by CoupeDevilleDTS+Nov 19 2008, 06:35 PM~12204300-->g body latches pull really easy, they can be pulled with a 15lbs solenoid. But if you keep the inside door handle it has to move that as well so then you need some more power. Plus if you want it to be reliable you need to go with atleast a 35lbs. Spal makes a good kit. Ive installed these on g bodys and other cars, theyve lasted on a daily for 7+ years now.

Spall in an S10 I did 4 years ago and still thunk like a mofo. The only problem was the poppers them selves, got em on ebay and the rusted and need lubed every so often. The Spall electronics are simple and solid.
coo so im better off taking it to da shop for this then?? :biggrin:Originally posted by STR8RIDA@Nov 19 2008, 08:00 PM~12205650
NO!!!! Don't just mud over where the handles and locks are. You need to weld some metal in there, but be carefull not to warp it up by taking your time. If you simply bondo over it - it WILL fail on you. Good luck.......
x2, if it gets warped you will be doing this to your doorsOriginally posted by CoupeDevilleDTS@Nov 20 2008, 05:38 PM~12212370
Like they said be careful when welding, sheet metal can warp. Tell them not to run a bead around the metal filler piece, just tack it in, sand/grind down the welds and use filler. The less filler you use the better because after you spend money to put paint on you dont want filler shifting and causing a crack in the paint! If the body is curved, make the filler piece curved to follow it, remember, less filler is better!
