    Thanks for all the coments they inspire me

    I have made more on the power windows

    [​IMG]

    I made a rear side window in plywood

    [​IMG]

    I put in the lift unit to see how it worked

    and after some adjustments can drive the window with power unit

    [​IMG]

    I will use this srip holder to the window sealing it need some adjustments in the lower
    end

    [​IMG]

    I made some cut in the door so the rear window don't toutch the door when i drive it up and down

    [​IMG]

    Both windows driven to the top

    [​IMG]

    I have to made a upper stop on the door window for the moment it goes 1/2" to high when it is perfeckt in the bottom.

    Looks really cool! I have been reading on this forum for awhile, and recently joined, trying to decide on my first project. I think this thread has sold me on looking for a shoebox. Not that I would ever have the nuts to do all this to one. Your work is amazing.

    Get that Eames chair out of your shop and into your house! or send it to me!
     
  28. I like your DeSoto. That's a very good looking car. A friend of mine has a '42 that I've been trying to get off of him for a while now. Just hasn't worked out as of yet.
