Power Window Options

I am looking for the best kit at a decent price. I was wondering what brand first and foremost is reliable. Second what style of lift should I be running. I have a 1970 chevrolet c10

This thread is also in interior for those of you wondering if you were having deja-vu

Consider installing a power motor from the junkyard on your existing manual window riser mechanism. I am doing that on my '53 Chevy pickup. Just cut off the crank shaft and welded on a plate that accepts a Ford motor, meshed with the big sprocket. The gear pitch on the sprockets are pretty much all the same in older vehicles. The Ford motor fits just about every manual rise I have looked at. The GM power motor has a finer gear pitch so doesn't work like the Ford. This will be dirt cheap and will work much better than the flimsy after market thingies.

In my opinion, power windows are a big pain in the a**.

I put some in my 68 el Camino and had nothing but trouble with them. Maybe it's the colder weather up here, but they kept jamming and freezing up etc. At least with window cranks, you were not at the mercy of the electrical bugs.

I would really like to clean up my door panels, but understand the regulators crapping out on you. I have a friend with the same problem here in texas. Weather is hardly ever cold, just last week it snowed two inches on Saturday and was 65 on monday!!! Is there anyway else to clean things up without the use of power windows? I was hoping to make my door panels this weekend. I was doing all the prep-stuff today and taking a pratice shot tonight. I am in big time crunch I am busting my butt to finish my truck before my senior prom in 11 weeks and 1 day!! Any suggestions ideas anything.....?
