    So, you want power windows...

    Buick Special, Skylark, GS400 power windows

    I shopped around and ended up purchasing a pricer set from a reputable Chevelle/Camero/Nova restoration supplier for $699.00. They were sold to me as a good replica of the original equipment regulators.


    You are going to have to remove the doors and everything in them. (Give some consideration to the fact that you may wish to remove the front fenders to adjust the doors later)

    Read the instructions, they sound straight forward, but lack a lot of information unless you are familiar with working with doors and windows.

    Take your doors off.


    Roll down the window and remove the felts.

    Remove Front Window

    Remove two upper window stops and the rear window guide. Remove the window by lifting it up at the rear and sliding it out of the track.

    Vent window mountings

    This serves two purposes.

    1. It's fun
    2. It allows your car to get up to operating temperature.

    Bringing your engine up to temperature is important to burn off contaminants in the oil and it also gets rid of moisture in the exhaust system. If you've waited too long and it's a bit too cool to get the engine up to temperature, use a piece of cardboard in front of the rad to help things along. Be careful not to overheat it this way.
    While you are out cruising, stop by a car wash and clean the undercarriage. Then stop and fill the tank with high grade gasoline, be sure and add the appropriate amount of fuel stabilizer before filling up the tank. This will thoroughly mix the stabilizer with the fuel. Now drive straight home and wash and scrub up the outside of the car. Clean the car as if you were entering it in a show and shine. If it's ...
