one of my mates has a commy vagon with shaved handles. he got them engerneered, but he is able to open up the door with a manual button thats built into the rubber around the outside of the windows. its black, so it blends in with the car and you still have no handles.

Look at most mini trucks, the new handles of sorts are called poppers, usually a button along your rubber moulding some where

a remote keyless door release would be the way to go but by law an external latch is still needed for it to be legal. if the latches were hidden or missing it would hinder a rescue crew trying to get access at an accident scene.

have you looked into the mirror trick?? its pretty shneeky lol. theres a cable that runs through the door conected to the mirror and door release. all you do to get it open is push the mirror towards the rear of the car, pretty simple lol.. but that dosnt solve the problem of the rear doors... i was looking into all this for my ef but i blew my diff so i kinda lost intrest.. and now iv got another project on the go aswell.... maybe one day lol
