Are you going to use the handle to operate the electric Windows (via hidden switches)

Yes, the handle will be the up/down switch, will put a pic up as soon as I have the wiring done.

Wow, in that case I had better start on the motors for the quarter windows :D

I'm still not happy with the window motors, and have dismantled again and lubricated the channels due to a slight hesitancy/jump in travel, namely due to me testing finger crunching force, yes it did hurt a lot.

The motor itself is from a new aftermarket Transit window regulator, chosen for correct gear teeth spacing and low amperage. But the motor seems to be a cheap import and am now awaiting a used original for comparison.

Ultimately may need to go down Pippins suggestion of Stag motors, as none of the modern motors have metal internal gearing, I'm still investigating.

As soon as this minor problem and some longevity testing is complete, I will put up the pics.

If you're going to motor the quarterlights have a look at the Rover P6 mechanism. To open the fronts you rotate a knob. I wonder if it could be adapted or give you an idea.

I have the Stag quarterlight gearbox which should do the trick with a high torque programmable servo, just need time.

Have taken the main window motor apart, the main spindle to regulator gear is fine with no wear, the main plastic gear connecting to the worm
gear is wearing down, i should not have tested it's limits, but just had to know.

Excellent, I will try to pop up this week, the Sprint could do with another run.

Will put the transit motor back in for now, and attach the towbar.

Thanks Steve.

Smart work again Mahesh.
:idea: You have some great ideas at turning standard equipment into a simple modern modification.
