Ordered Spal Power Window Kit...

The kit will ship Monday. I'll do a how-to when I install it. $150 something for the kit and switches... I consider it a good investment. =3

Nice purchase, wonder if you would be able to get some stock focus switches to work with the kit.

I'm sure I could get some stock switches and wire them to my purpose, but the switches I ordered will be just fine. I'm gonna install them on the center console!

Since I have a stick, it's much easier for my right hand to have access to the switches than my left. I've always kinda liked the center console arrangement.

It'll present it's own installation headaches, but I'm willing. I think it'll be an awesome setup when I'm done!

I'd love to see a write up on this. I don't think anyone's ever done a how to on it. Good luck and make sure to post a how to when done!

suggestion: buy the factory bezels with switches. DO NOT install the switches that come with them. they are crap. you'll just end up putting wholes in your car and switches that stick/unusable. check ebay for a set. trust me, i've had my kit for almost 3 years now and gone thru 3 sets of switches.

after i get mine setup ill post a DIY thread.

Yes invest in the factory bezels for the factory switches, don't bother with the ones from the kit. I managed to wire all four factory switches (including the rear lock out function, and driver one touch relay) all with the help of my Ford wiring diagram manual. I could've written a how-to myself, but due to my kit being a crappy knock-off (I was only able to use the wiring loom...all 4 motors crapped out on me), it took some time before I actually got all the right parts. Good luck w/ the installation and write up.

I got the kit from this little site called A-1 electric, after doing a little homework on the "best" quality aftermarket window kit. This kit uses your existing crank mechanism, so if a motor goes out or something, your window is still operational until you get it fixed.

I'm not terribly worried yet about the quality of the switches, based on what I paid for them. The kit itself is supposed to be modular and able to be purchased for any number of doors/windows arrangement, so you have to buy the switches seperate. The ones I got came with their own wiring harness, are illuminated, and cost me $40! If those switches feel like anything but quality right out of the box, back they go.

This place sold some serious switches too though. One adonized billet aluminum set was a hunnert bucks. o.o
