Installing an Electric Life EL02-K Street Rod
Power Window Kit in a 1955 Chevy 150 Sedan.
We have drilled new mounting holes as high in the plate as possible (red arrows). This should give us the extra travel that we need. (Note: This step is not necessary with the EL1000-K. The new regulator mounting plate is fully adjustable!)
In order to mount this regulator with only an inch of space, the upper mounting brackets and the lower mounting bracket is flattened out (blue arrows). The kit comes with the brackets pre bent for a window to door clearance of 1 1/2 inches. In order to function properly, the regulator must be mounted parallel to the glass. On this vehicle, spacing was perfect with the brackets all flattened out. On many vehicles, it may be necessary to place shims under the brackets to raise them up, rather than flattening them out to lower them.
Our brackets are flattened out and we are ready to mount our regulator in the door. We use a piece of cardboard to fabricate a mounting/drilling template. Notice the vertical line. We'll use this line to make sure that our regulator is mounted parallel to the window travel.
