    I'm really confused. The door handles are shaved but the "exterior door lock" was left in? Please explain or show a photo.

    Well I guess I was on the wrong track . Sorry about that.

    So you walk up to the car, put the key in the lock, turn it to unlock the door, then push the lock in to pop the door open with a solenoid? The closest thing I found is just a plain mechanical button without the key lock.



    I guess I don't see the point, nor have I ever seen anything like that. Why not just use a keyless entry system to open the door with a key fob so you don't need anything on the outside of the door at all?

    Yes door handles shaved, lock remains and acts as the button to activate the door poppers. No photos I don’t own that car anymore. Just trying to figure out how it was done. Cause I didn’t do it the owner before me did.

    Yeah I’ve seen that set up before not really what I’m wanting. Well to each their own, it’s a set up that I dug. Just trying to figure it out. Thanks for the help and ideas

    Mike, I'm fresh out of ideas. Was going to suggest the same approach as Laszlo but he beat me to it!

    You might try posting your question over at the HAMB in their Traditional Custom area......

    https://www.jalopyjournal.com/forum/...al-customs.58/

    Those guys are heavy into the '50s and earlier custom car scene.

    Hope this helps,

    Harry
