Drove her to work, now repairing and refinishing more interior parts.

Has anyone had luck cutting a crank door panel to accommodate power window switches? (Power window car, manual panels on it from when I bought it.)

Don't know if I want to attempt to do that, or just relocate the window switches to the center console.

Yes i have. And will be doing it again on my G wagon. They locate in place of the manual window cranks. I used an exacto knife when i did my first one many years ago.

Fired mine up 2 days ago to move it so I could install lights above it. It had sat for a few weeks so in typical fashion the carb was dry. I saw no evidence of leakage when I rebuilt the carb, so I'm wondering about the likelihood of the bowl evaporating all the gas out? The next day it fired instantly which is typical if I start it only a couple days apart.

Just looking for opinions. Getting my SB Olds stroker for my 84'Hurst next month. On the fence on engine paint. Thinking about painting it all factory black to look stock lately. Original plan was Olds gold with the aluminum heads, intake and fabbed aluminum valve covers. Want to run A/C on it so will have to notch the valve cover for that...stock valve covers probably won't work even with extra thick gaskets. Thanks
