Need power window install help!

This is my first post on the Forum. I just purchased a 1948 Chevy pickup that has been chopped 5" and has no side windows installed. I am trying to figure out how to install power windows.

My first problem is the vertical window channels. The original channels are 7/8" wide and are made for window glass that has a frame around it. I plan to use flat glass without a frame. I think I need to replace with 5/8" channel with 5/8" flexible window channel felt for 1/4 glass. Can someone confirm this and tell me who sells the 5/8" channel. Many places sell the felt in bulk.

Also, there are many brands of power window operators out there ranging from $200 to $500. Can someone give me some advise on which ones are good and which ones to avoid?

Thanks for your help.
