Thanks for posting them.

A lot could be learned from the post.

Willys,

Glad to have your expertise still around. Got scared about the 149 comment.

The pics and explanations are great.

Do you have to worry about an water intrusion with the electrical connectors from RB's Obsolete parts or will the area be sealed tightly?

That comment was just frustration with Jon. He has always impressed me with his level-headedness in the midst of all the squalls and storms on the board. When he defended the potheads puking on the board I was at a loss for thoughts or words. And when he equated mind altering drugs that ruin lives with over-the-line hot rodding (which I have never endorsed or done and believe should be disciplined here), that was the final straw. I went on a two week vacation w/ my grandkids and calmed down. I'm cool.

The connectors should do fine. All of the metal parts are made of heavy stainless steel and the connectors are conventional crimp-ons that are tinned brass. The springs on the plungers (also stainless) are very strong so should make super contact every time the door closes. On my pickup the only part of the installation that could possibly be exposed to water is on the inside of the door and even that is pretty well isolated from the window opening, being snuggled way under the wind wing. Everywhere else in the installation is essentially inside the passenger compartment. There is no evidence in these 50 year old doors of water ever getting near the location. I'm much more concerned with how to weather-proof the speakers I will install in the doors than about the contactors.

There is another version of these (I think Juliano's sells them) that have the plunger pins on both halves of the connector. I like the ones I chose because of the wide, flat connector pad on one half. I am not that good at installing stuff like this and the big landing pads gave me a fighting chance of having them line up as opposed to trying to have two 1/4" pins hit in 3-D!

The flanges on the halves overlap the hole in the sheet metal or 'glass by about 1/4" so there isn't much chance of water intrusion there and that could be slammed totally shut with a little silicone.

Thanks Willys,

I am planning on installing elect windows on my wife's 66 C10. I am not sure if I will put speakers in the doors or by the kick pannels. I like the contactor idea, a lot cleaner look than having a bunch of wires between the door and body.

I am with you, I am lucky and there is a no tolerance for dope in the military. Makes life so much simpler.
