Hi all,
Ive been thinking for a while now,
About removing the rear door handles from my 5 door mk2.5 focus zetecS
And havng the door panels smoothened to look like a long 3 door model.

Has anyone got any knowlege or experience in fitting door poppers?

For those who dont already know;
Door poppers are an electronic pulling device that pulls the latch to open the door. Just like the handle normaly would.
Big in america but not saw much over here. Id like to do it though lol

Here are some pics if someone wants to do a photoshop for me too please lol.

Any thoughts on this either ? Is it a good idea

Looks good to me mate thanks.
Seems to make the car look a tad shorter in length,
If i didnt use the rear child locks
Then id get it smoothend and open via inside handle

But since i need the child locks active
Ill have to look in to poppers and all that is envolved.

Do you reckon it would be a low maintanance modification?

Looks different but don't know if I like it or not. Probably not for me.

True enough, it could reach 400pounds in development
I think ill leave tis one out there for the moment and see if anyone else takes action on the idea.
My budget is booked up for 2013 without this modification lol
