-Remove door handle
-Get a popper to push on the latch release lever where the outside handle would have pushed
-Wire it up
-Install a spring to pop the door opened some when the latch is released
-Cut out a piece of sheetmetal the shape of the indent that is left with the door handle missing and tack weld it in place
-Grind down the welds and go over it with bondo and smooth it out
-Repaint door

I personally think it would be a lot easier to just buy a new door handle, but then again, I'm not a fan of the shaved handle look. Plus if the battery ever dies or you accidentally leave the keys in the car and close the door, it will be a real PITA to get into the car.
