Default Power to Maual Window Conversion?

has anyone ever converted your Foxbody door windows from power to manual? i am looking to install the Scott Fab aluminum door panels but they dont work with power windows so a conversion is needed. any suggestions? doing the conversion to clean up the inside of the car a bit.

I know that people who have street rods use a small switch to use on their power windows. They mount them on the door or under the dash. I'm sure you could do something like that.

so just mount like a toggle switch and run the wires too it? maybe ill get one of the Nitrous control panels that mount in the ash tray and run the toggle switches for the windows off that. ill do some research on it and ill post pictures on the route i decide to go with

All you need is the manual crank mechanism and bolt it in. I have a set of tracks and windows from a manual car. However power windows are nice to have and I would keep them.

i do like power windows, but i also like the clean simplistic look of crank windows. that and it will drop a ton of weight to delete unneeded stuff (power windows, rear seats, etc)
