    The easiest way might be to get a junkyard set of power doors from a later truck and transfer the internals into your doors, tho not sure if that is possible. Not sure what year they started power windows, but I know my 79 has them and a 78 I looked at had them. Might be able to use the doors directly on your topless beast and do the sheetmetal work to make them fit............sawzalls are popular on this board [​IMG]. There are guys here that have made their post-75 trucks topless.

    I've done just that....junk yard parts....bolted in. Get the wiring harness etc. The inner(plastic) panels are different....no crank holes, so you'll wanna change those too...maybe update to a later model while your at it. There are lots of kits in the street truck and rodder mags....pretty high dollar for me. Allot of people have lots of grief with their power windows...ya might wanna do a search on this topic and see what ya find. Swapping out the whole door is a good idea too, if your doors are ruff at all. Just chop 'em off and put on your caps.

Different people have different skill levels...I do everything myself (that I can) so the swwap was no big deal for me.Look it over and see what ya think.
