I am a couple of days away from finishing the installation of the power windows in my 56 basically adding power and cutting the holes between the door and cab where these control wires transit. My plan is to pull back out the old classic Chevy magazine article detailing the instructions and hit the store for an angle drill.

Just soliciting any lessons learned from those that have already completed this step.

Here's a "How to" from Ecklers. Link to power windows.

Thanks, I have the old classic Chevy magazine article. I keep rereading the remove the door statement. Because if I do, I will end up installing new hinges...oh well. Time to knock this off the build sheet and place that hinge order.

Unless the detent springs are broken, the pins and bushings are the only thing that wears, and they are replaceable.

FWIW, I found the following linked thread to be of value. I did the loom cutout with the doors on. Regards, Doug

This is exactly what I was looking for Belairo!! Thanks!

Are you using the spring conduit that came with the window kit or the wire bracket holder?

One shopping trip for the angle drill with fresh drill bits, described as last minute Christmas shopping, and I am ready to start.

I started with a spring type conduit, didn't like how it worked, and thought it klunky, with the spring sliding through the bulkhead sleeve, especially with the spring being at an angle through part of the door travel, so ended up getting the OE style loom.
Regards, Doug
