    Okay.... I have had it with these slow ass GM electric windows! Mine actually go up pretty well compared to the previous trucks and blazers i've had, but.... in comparison to the Fords and Dodges.... they suck! Even the best lubed, adjusted and whatever, dont compare.
    .....So here is where you all come in...... My plan is to take an extra regulator from someones truck, and convert it to a faster, stronger motor. Working at a dealership affords me the availability to find the perfect electric window motor for this job. But i dont want to butcher up mine till i know i can make it work. So....... i only need one at this point, at least until im into full production [​IMG] Maybe if i can pull this off.... i can do some sort of trade-in .... send me your old ones.... and i'll send you a "Tim Taylor' version
    ...... well thats my pipe dream as of now..... I'll keep you posted.

    Maybe you should get a second battery and connect it in series, just for your windows. LOL

    If you really make this work, I might be your first customer.

    Well...... i need your help still...... I still am in need of a window regulator assembly for my little conversion. The one that i thought i had available didnt pan out. So anyway.. if anyone out there has an extra that they could temporarily donate for the cause, id sure appreciate it. I will pay for the shipping on it, and in turn i will send it back to possibly converted to a faster motor. Thanks again.
