Finally found switches for a good deal! And they came with the harness! Not only that but got two door handles for 10$! 75$ total shipped! Swapping led's and then all I need now is the window motors to complete the swap.

Mind you I can only find the motors at 125$ each...

Just called two places and they won't take the motor out. You have to buy the whole door.. LOL

Speedy, I found some for 35 bucks apiece.
Let me know if you want me to pick them up for you.

If I ship to Canada do I have to pay extra taxes and stuff?
I called for San Antonio and they scrapped the cars today, and I'm heading to Houston Sunday, so I looked there and they have them.
I'll let you know Sunday when I go. Can you PM me your number and I'll call you Sunday?
What are all the parts you need?
The window motor and the regulator?

That all depends on you, and what you want to accomplish. I wanted to go all OEM so I bought ss door panels and switches instead of modifing my old panels.


I haven't heard much about the universal kit but it usually mean's a bit of modification will be required, I had to do that with my automatic lock conversion.

I'd go the safer route and buy oem electric motors

Depend's on what route you take.

If you want to keep your old panels to save money, sure you can just toss a switch in there, or you can buy the switch bezel from an ss, and dremel it into the door, I've seen that done as well, or buy ss panels with the switches.
