Default Has anybody shaved door handles?

I have shaved handles before but only on a tailgate. How hard is it to shave door handles and where is the best place to get door popers?

remove door handles, cut a piece of metal to fit hole, slowly tack welding filler plate around until fully welded. install electronic actuators to open latch.
