Electric Window Kits?

Am thinking about putting electric windows in my 40 Plymouth and wonder if any of you have used the EZ Power Windows kit from EZ Wiring or other vendors? Do they work and hold up well or are there other kits that are better plus easier to install in these older rigs?
Thanks,
Sleezie

electric window kits

I personaly dont care for them, helped a friend install them, and we fought them all the way. Then they did not work well. Maybe just got some bad ones. This is just my opinion.

I installed a set of Specialty Power Windows in my '53 Pickup and they went in easily and work very well.

I have a set of SPW power windows in my 34 coupe. While I did not install them, the manufacturer did, I have taken them out to prep the doors for paint. They came out easily and looked like an easy install. While they were in the doors before I pulled them out I operated them with a battery and they worked extremely well.

SPW makes a good kit, but they are rather expensive. The thing I like about them is the wide base and wide track. They also have the motor as an integral part of the assembly. The kit from It's A Snap seems to have similar features and costs a lot less. Some other vendors have the motor separate. I guess it all depends on how much room you have in your door.

Power Windows

Thanks guys for the info....the SPW's are rather dicey in price but look like better quality than others I've seen. You're right about the wide channel base and motors. Look real solid...guess I'll look hard at these for a substitution. The channels are the only thing bad with my old ones and at $65 a pair for them it's gonna be a push to see how much I really want them. Sure like them in my modern car tho.... well Christmas is comin and the kids need something to stuff in the oldman's sock.
Later...and thanks again...
