In my personal opinion, 4 door shaved door handle is no good. I think it would look alright, but the convience would be a ****in pain. if you want to do it, not sure if it works on first gens, but buy rear door handles and put them up front, so there is no keyhole.
Are we talking about a car stared all winter or what? Up here in wisconsin, you try that and the door sticks from ice you are locked out til it gets warm. I would only consider doing this to a fair weather car.
