i thihnk stealth's way is the most accurate way to install them.. that makes its the easiest way for it to pull on the latch.

my buddy installed his differently and he had to always hit his button a few times before the door evenually opened.

yeah a write up would be nice, and jason if you could snap some pics that would be great. i already have the doors shaved and bondo on them. i left the key lock on the driver side so i can still get in.lol i just need a good solid way to install the popper system. which is coming in the mail probably next week. i got themfrom suicidedoors.com and the cool thing is i didnt pay for them my parents did, early x-mas present.
btw they are the 35 lb poppers

you need to know how to weld.
and a drill and possibly a electric saw depending on the popper.
and need to open the door panel.
i think... haha

i was going to do it but someone i know from high school burnt to death in his car because of an accident a dew months ago. So i wanted my door to be able to open 100%. lol

^^ i think maybe he was refering to the welding of metal where you would shave the door handle...
Are you talking about the actual shaving? Not the door poppper? It sounds like he's already got that done.

I'll snap some pics here in a few minutes, I'm gonna finish getting ready, and I'll go out there!

No, i removed them before shaving the handles thankfully.

I locked myself out of my car multiple times because leave the keys in the ignition at gas station and accidentlly lock the doors. Good thing i had the magnetic key holder or i would been screwed and had to break into my own car!

Thankfully i use average joe handles now.

haha, yea, everyone(my friends) is telling me to shave the handles, and I keep telling them no that its not worth it on a DD. ANd besides, our handles sit flush and are pained, and IMOP they fit the car(round and clean)
