anyone tried these?
I'm using the ones from Classic Ind, made by Electric life. Never saw those before
Do you like them and how was the install?
Looks like the same kit but what's nice about the class is is I can get the factory switch and make these look like the car was born with them
Those kits differ from factory power window equipped cars tho-factory cars used a stainless switch and the OE motors were grounded to the door shell. I've built several harnesses for other forum members who wanted modern power window options like auto down. The newer style switch requires a dedicated ground since it uses a power window motor with reversing polarity. These are just some things to keep in mind when ordering and installing those kits. I don't care much for the quality of their harnesses tho-I have seen some horrid examples from Electric Life so be sure to look the harness over carefully.
Maybe this is a better option
That's the Electric Life kit that I got . They work good and are quiet. Junkyard dog made my harness and it all works great . My issue at th moment is getting them adjusted, new door seals are tight and I'm not sure how to adjust the glass for a better slide
Is it diilfficult to install them? Seems like it would be a nightmare getting the new regulators in...what did the harne
I decided on Specialty Power Windows after doing some research. Its not a knock on Electric Life either.
The SPW regulators bolted up very easily. Construction is very good. They come with full wiring and the console switch.
I haven't operated them yet so I cannot comment on that aspect yet. But reviews indicated they function very well.
My body guy put em in so I don't know how hard to install. They weren't too hard to get out tho. The ones 76 LT got look like a good set, but you will still need some more harness to go with that kit too if you don't have any existing wiring it looks like.
Check in with Junkyard dog to see what he can do for you, he's a great guy and KNOWS car wiring. Uses hi quality stuff
