    Would this work?

    Found this set-up on Epay.
    https://www.ebay.com/itm/264515084900


    Anybody tried this before? Does this look like it would actually operate?
    Might be worth a try for $150...

    Cool

    I "think" it might work. The glass goes almost straight up & down, and there a bunch of room at bottom of door
    When I put he EL locks & bear claw latches in my Nodoor one the hardest part was getting all the wires out of door (hinge side of door & jam has Major reinforcement) into van ,with out getting in the way
    Seem like somebody used a set up like this??

    Why Power Assist?

    Why would a VCVanner want to install power windows? Maybe elbow is hurting. Why install power brakes? Maybe right knee is aching. Why install automatic transmission? Maybe left knee is throbbing. Why install power steering? Maybe shoulders are barking. Why lose fabric seat and install leather? Depends..
    It's heck getting old.

    my first early had power windows and ac but not power steering or power brakes
    had auto and a carb
    the early I have now has power windows power steering, front disc brakes
    fuel injection and an overdrive trans, the ac will be next, some of it is needed
    most of it is just so cool to have in a vehicle that never came out with it.

    I aspire to have all of those amenities... But alas not enough knowhow, or money to have it done right!

    If any of you Master mechanics, have time, & want to help me with work to get my ride to a higher level?
    I am available...
