Nu Relics Window Crank Switches

I know this is an old thread but I just added window crank switches to my 32 Ford 3 Window Coupe. I checked all the brands/suppliers and found that in my opinion Nu Relics in North Carolina has the best electric window crank switches. They are rated at 17 amps while most of the others need relays if you have factory motors that draw more than 10 amps. By the way I installed a set of their power windows in the 32 and I will tell you these are some well made units. The old ones just didn't have enough power to get them up. Now they go up as fast as the old early 80's Corvettes. Good company and a nice guy. They answer the phone when you call and you can talk to Earl himself anytime. The Nu-Cranks as they have branded them even have the NU Relics logo engraved them. They make a quality product and stand behind them.

EOD Guy That's good, how long have those type switches been on the market? I thought they were pretty new. Learn something every day.

CarGuy350z Glad you had a good experience with them. I've been in street rodding for 30 years so I've dealt with them all.

EOD Guy I tried your link.... didn't work, based on your comment above, I assume you purchased all three brands of the switches, took them apart and found the Carolina's switch to be better made as well as their customer service.
While I did purchase the Electric Life switches, and then I took them apart and found a pair of very high quality 25-30 amp micro switches encased in Delrin? (not sure how to spell it) with a large a solid pivot pin and SS mounting screws. They install very easily and had instruction on various ways to mount them if you had large holes etc….. Very happy with mine, only issue was getting them and even then the dude was very polite.

CarGuy350z You're right on, EOD Guy. The problem is knowing which parts are good before you buy and find out the hard way. That's why I posted a reply here to begin with. Knowing WHO you are buying from is often more important than WHERE you are buying from.

Both of the foreign made kits that I referred to, by experience, are of questionable quality and are not backed up by their suppliers. (In fact, both of those kits are copies of the Carolina Custom kit which came first.) The other one is quality and is backed up by both the manufacturer and the seller that were listed. If you didn't check out that one link that I put up earlier, you might want to.

The Watson's unit is made by Carolina Custom, as they clearly state in their catalog and on their website - it's made in the USA. Watson's stands behind everything they sell, too. I know from experience.
Car Guy,

I'm w/you on this - try & buy American if @ all possible The price difference is negligible in the long run.

Thanks for the comment.

I'm still looking @ options right now. I like the look of the door panel w/only the door opening handle installed, but on the other hand I'm not sure where to conveniently locate a switch for operating the windows. If I have room, I might make a console & put it there since I have a manual tranny. Still checkin' it all out for now.

Thanks for the input,
Mike.

window motors/switches

I have used two '90 model Toyota motors to electrify my windows on an old Dodge pickup. Cut the handles and original crank gears off your regulators, cut the motor and gear off the Toyota regulator and weld them in place on your regulators with the gears meshed and you're set. Three $24 switches from NAPA will complete the installation in your doors. Not as hidden as the 15-degree movement switches you mention in your question, but a whole lot less expensive.

EOD Guy The switches rep of the crank switches. The color codes are what I have on my application....... I always make these diagrams when I add stuff and laminate them to a master diagram of my car...... that way I know what is factory and where and what color I spliced in etc....
