Easy fix... get a couple F-series doors at the boneyard and either cannibalize em or swap out the whole doors.

Done it on my 90 bko....simple, just get the regulators our of similar yuear f150 or bko, take door pannel off, unscrew the plate (the one the arm rest is attached to) drill out the rivets, remove motor actuated ones, insert, re reivet and put glass on track---no need to get new panels, as the ones you have have a jplace (circle0 on the inside, just get exacto knife, make smallo hole where the scre is, go to autozone, get two ford handles and two 8x32 machine scres, and your done!

Why would you do that!?

There are out there universal power windows' kits which can easily be adapted to your own, I know some brands like Spal, Hitachi, Unus and the like.... I did that with another car I had and they worked fine. Or maybe you just have to replace the switches and motors with new or rebuilt ones but not going back to manual!

Ive thought about swapping doors as well and get rid of power locks and windows. My locks dont work, and my passenger side window doesnt work properly (it rolls down with a little help, but the only way itll roll back up is to pull it up while pushing the button. If i can find another EB thats blue and tan, then ill grab the doors, but so far cant find the color, lol.
