Hi Neo,

Sorry mate, only just saw your message as I don't check in here that often. So, I've attached a couple of photos of the change. Hope it helps. Yes, I used the factory wiper motor. Just had to modify the linkage that drives the wipers.

So, got to another important part of the reassembly on the weekend. Got all of the side window weatherseal channels installed along with the weatherseals, window regulators reconditioned and installed, all inner door components including window channels, lock rods and clips etc fitted. Stripped all internal door parts, repaired and repainted. All new side window glass and glass hardware, new window sweeps etc. Greased everything up, which was such a shame after cleaning and painting and so on, then finally installed the driver's window.

I know it might seem like a small task, but for you guys who have done this, you'll know how much is involved. It took ages to get everything ready and the small stuff is really time consuming. Once the window was in, I was amazed at how solid the window now is. It rolls up and down really well, and doesn't rattle (yay) when I close the door. I haven't yet adjusted it in the up position, but one thing at a time.

Thanks for checking in.

So, another milestone reached yesterday. Started the engine for the first time in 2 and a half years. I did a cam swap and fitted some new valve springs and roller rockers and have been slowly reassembling the engine and accessories over the last couple of weeks. Lots of planning and making sure everything was right before we attempted to start it.

Yesterday morning, hooked the battery up, flicked the switch and pressed the button and after a while, it fired up and ran great. Had to adjust the timing only about 5 degrees and all good. What amazed me was, so far no leaks or troubles. I guess it's all the planning and pre-work that goes into this that creates a good result on start up.

I love the sound of the car now with the new cam. Just need to fix an exhaust leak at the collectors, but otherwise it appears all is well. Need to tidy up the ignition leads, wiring etc.

I used the GM hotcam kit and all went well with the fit etc. I love the way it sounds. Am trying to post a video, but not having any luck. Will keep trying.

Thanks for checking in.

Where did you find the weather seals for the side windows?
