  • So I spent a lot of time making brackets and installing the track system that is sold by Jose from Spain, I think his user name is lambocars or something like that.

    Long story short, The tracks system I received is junk. I have purchased a few fiberglass parts from him with no problems at all. Luckily I had a track system that other have used in these cars. My mistake for not firing up the Jose system earlier. oh well live and learn

    • Starting over with a working window track..... for Way less coin!!

      Modified the track, and used the original holder for the glass that came with the car.

      When fully retracted about 2.5 inches stick up above the door.

      Still have to make a mount for the motor.

      But pretty happy how it came out

          • Took the door apart and prepped and painted the frame. While the paint was drying sorted out the Fiero power window wiring and added a couple of relays, worked out nice to be able to use the existing wiring

            I have spent a lot of time on that work stool lately

            • When Murci-Me let me pull a center console from the mold he had, I made a mold to make the console switch plate. It took me a while to locate the part yes that is PVA on the part

              Added the Audi switch and replica switch frame. The wiring, relays, switch and motor all work great!

              • Bonded the metal door frame to the inner door. Got a new set of tracks as the one from the pick n pull was rusted.

                Got everything reinstalled and the new maxima track is waaay better. Now to work on getting the outer skin to fit correctly.

                About 3.25 inches of glass stick up above the door sill

                        • The outer skin when on the car is not in alignment with the body

                          The PO took a lot of fiberglass off the body to make it align with the old G28 door.

                          Also the NEW door skin needs to be lengthened by about 1/4 inch.

                          Grind, fiberglass, cure. Turn over, repeat.

                          • A test fit of the door..... skin fits a lot better. Getting there


                            Still have some adjustments to do, really ?


                            The horizontal body line that runs between the door and rear qtr panel, align nicely.

                              • Looking good man, I know what a pain it is to work out small details. They wind up taking a lot of time but are well worth it. Just makes you nit pick somewhere else lol
