    this was a nice clean good episode, i never knew aftermarket power window regulators looked like that, unfortunetly my Buick already has power windows so this is out of the question. My cars window regulators however have a reputation of stripping out when the windows freeze close and people keep trying too open them...

    but anyhow, i digress, it is nice too see a good clean DIY again just like you guys used to do it and i cant wait for the next one, good job moog and marty!

    i've been wanting to install this on my classic fiat 500, but i don't know if the motor will fit in the door, what is the width of the motor to see if i can fit it into the door panel

    I gotta say that episode was great. I didn't even realize such a product existed, and I'm glad the episode showed me how something like that was installed. It was great.

    I am slightly disappointed however that all items were not licked before install.

    Milk already mentioned that about the Jesus Clip

    A easy way to remove the Jesus clip, the clip that holds the window winder on (wanna know why its called that? Because when it comes off and flys across the floor you yell Jesus......... ), is to get a rag and run it between the door trim and the handle and then move it back and forward until you lever the clip off. Normally the base of the clip is located on the oposite side to the winder lever bit... So then you can get to it easier, but this isn't always the case.

    Best part about using a rag? you don't scratch the trim AND you also don't loose the clip as it gets stuck to it while removing it..

    Great episode, I was a little unsure from looking at pics of the kits how they work but this answered all the questions quite well.

    Nice episode.
    Was interested in something like this, actually, for a future car. Good to know that it's not extremely difficult to do.

    Cheers MOOG/Marty.
    hahaha, that was me who made that thread

    Edit: I lied I did watch this...don't chop my head off

    Also, mad props to Marty and Moog for doing the proposal thing in a comical but still serious-enough way. Very classy guys. I hope there's a reaction video for us to see.
    Here it is!

    I don't remember the last car I owned that had manual window cranks. I'm awesome that way I guess.
