Power window options

I am at a point where i want to put power windows in my F1 doors.. Is there an easy solution to this or can I fabricate something from a f250 or other truck to work. I dont want to put a ton of money into the Ebay ones. My doors are just shells now so i am free to make the however i want. Any suggestions?

pweng1,
Look at these guys.

These are the ones I plan on using for my 48. They bolt into the existing holes for the window regulator. So-Cal Arizona recommends these because of the motors and because they work. Also they give you a choice of switches and also if you want one piece glass or stick with the original. For some people they might be pricey, but the easy installation makes the extra expense worth it.

X2 for the nu-relics. I plan on using them in my F-1, but not there quite yet. Only decision I have left is single piece side windows or leave as is with vent windows.

I installed 4 units in my dad's 1956 Chevrolet 210. It was a nearly painless install. They are about twice the price of the universal ones, but if you have more money than time and fabricating skill, it is definitely the way to go. It can be sourced from most of your favorite suppliers or directly from Nu-Relics. The people at Nu-Relics are really great to deal with so I would suggest buying directly from them.

Good luck in whatever route you go!

X3 on the Next-relics. Well built and great customer service. Had to modify mine to work with my Hagan hidden hinges but very happy with the kit.
