the doors on my 58 truck are similar to yours
the glass is so close to the inner skin that it is hard to get them inside the glass
i mounted my 40# solenoids on the inside of the door
and made the door panel arm rests to cover them

my power windows are from an 06 dodge durango front doors
they cost me nothing, but i had to cover the motor with the door panel too

i'd do it again, i like the shaved door handles
i bought a galaxy alarm system and use the fob and alarm outputs to open the doors
i have the drivers door set up with the un-lock button
the pass door set up with the trunk button
the trunk (yes, my truk has a trunk) set up with the shift+trunk button
and the tonneou cover set up with the shift+remote start button
everything works as it should, except the drivers door doesn't pop open enough sometimes
then i have to stick a finger in and pop the door again, a minor inconvenience
