i went to a place called redline autobody in St. Albert today and got them to write me up a quote on getting my crew cab doors shaved.

$2,409.00 for everything.

do u think thats too much? what are your thoughts on it?

2400!!!! that includes completely painted doors and a blow job from the woman at the front desk right lol just messin man but for real though just getting the handles shaved and then painted for 2400 seems like alot to me i got quoted 2800 for shaved handles, tails, third brake light and molded roll pan wit leds. and license plate box frenched in thats primered though but still alot more work involved and only 400 more than your quote i would do some searching...

just a pain in the ass sometimes to have shaved doors. Plus you gunna wanna come up with other ways to get into your car just incase something fails.

what do u recommend then. and the odds of all 4 doors not working at the same time are pretty slim

it's gonna suck because you can NEVER close your door if you have the keys in the truck.. unless u leave a window open.. i did that the other day, stopped at the end of my driveway to grab the news paper/mail and i got out and shut the door.. my handles aren't shaved yet, but all the rods and hardware and shit was removed.. soooo i had to run into the house and grab the spare remote to pop the door. luckily i was at home :lol:

i always have my remote with me. i just keep the key itself in the truck if i have to leave it running. i dont think i would have any problems but i do understand where u guys are coming from. that would suck though if i did do that

Hey man....Redline does amazing work. My truck is straight as an arrow. They DO REALLY GOOD WORK. But I guess you get what you pay for right ? What I would do is go to as many body shops as I could and Get as many quotes as I could. Then go back to Keving and tell him what you can get else where. Or even offer him an under the table deal. :shrug:

yea if your brain, or the fuse to it goes out all 4 doors will not work :lol: . In my car i put my doors on a seperate alarm with a backup battery. And my other alarm has a window roll down module. I also have a battery jump cable so if both batteries die i can jump it without opening the hood. So if something happens to the doors i can still roll down the windows and open them from the inside.
