    Strike two....
    Nothing that interesting, but coming to the end of the door mods and these were really annoying me:



    Not only do they not match, but they both needed a stack of shims to get them anywhere near the door 'centraliser', so rummaged around in the scrap bin and after a mere few hours produced these:



    Which not only match, but also bring the striker out to where it needs to be.



    Laaavly. Might get them chromed to resist the wear & tear, but the old ones seemed to have survived over 80 years without too many issues.

    Windows 30. 2.0
    Remember these?:



    The first electric window motor and mount assembly.
    It had a few issues - it was massively over-engineered (and therefore quite heavy), the regulators were bulky (and quite heavy), but the final nail in the coffin was the fact I could not find the runners for theregulator rollers & window.
    Now I know I could have made them, but that would have been quite complex and very time consuming. So they have been rejected. The regulators are up for sale and the exquisite mount brackets hidden away to someday be used in a future project.

    The replacement regulators are somewhat more lithe and come complete with guide runners:



    Pictured next to the original for scale. They are from some kind of Daihatsu and are small, lightweight and probably a whole lot more efficient.
    They are very similar to Subaru and Honda parts (to name but two) and the motors are identical which leads me to believe that they are all made at the same factory.
    Anyhoo, they needed mount brackets so I fabbed these up:



    Far less complex that the first attempt. They will be bolted to the inner door skin flanges. The regulators mount like this:





    Just have to make the mounts for the doors now. Hope to have it all done by the weekend so I can get the doors back on.

    that's why our cars take so long, we keep revisiting stuff that we'd previously thought were 'good enough'. as usual the mk2 version looks much better though.
    neil.
    need a job done on your project? i may be able to help.

    So, after literally years planning, fabricating, head-scratching, buying, selling, researching, re-fabricating etc. the electric windows work!
    The substitute window may not be as transparent as is customary, but it is the same thickness as the lexan that will be used, and a lot easier to play about with (shape-wise) than the window itself.
    There are a couple of small mods to make the operation smoother, but largely I am very happy with it.
    Enjoy!
