Default Honda Civic complete BODY shave?

Sometime this week, I'm hopefully going to pick up a '94 Honda Civic 2dr. It's really not in the best cosmetic shape, but it's got a fresh D16Z6 head with a Y8 bottom end and a new JDM transmission. Anywho, it's been spray painted on, there was obvious signs that it had been in wreck and half of the car is red and the other half is primer grey. I looked at the picture and thought to myself that this car has some potential and since it's already started to be fixed it would be the perfect opportunity to clean it up some. I don't like the look of body kits and stuff like that, unless I have the performance parts to make it as fast as it looks. I would like to shave the doors, every emblem on the car, the trunk lock, shave the fuel door and reroute the pipe that leads to the fuel tank into the left taillight or trunk, and maybe even the antenna if possible because I don't use my radio much anyway. I'd like to have the ones with a 50lb solenoid, but what if my battery dies? I also have about $1,200 worth of stereo equipment in the trunk I for sure don't want stolen. Is there a kit that doesn't require a solenoid to pop the door open? I'd like to have a mostly stock looking car that has a clean, shaved appearance but without the hassle of worrying about a dead battery! I know my grandpa rigged up a shaved door kit on his '34 Ford coupe that he built. He heated up a certain size allen wrench and bent it in a very strange,specific, curvy appearance and it would only work on those doors. Any help? Thanks!

doesnt matter if the trunk is shaved or not....if people hear you got a system its not hard to take a brick an throw it through the window and just steal the whole damn car....which will leave you with nothing. as of your question....most shave kits use solenoids to pop the doors or whatever they are for. but doin all this to a civic....worthless.

"unless I have the performance parts to make it as fast as it looks"

lol i nearly popped laughing so hard.. definition of a ricer.

if you do shave the entire car, its more all welcoming the thieves to rip you off. why? they know your trying to hide something, they know you spent money in it. leave it bone stock or put a alarm system on and you'll be fine. i dont see why people steal hondas anyways. they get busted trying to run from the pigs, unless they need mpg.
