Installing an Electric Life EL02-K Street Rod
Power Window Kit in a 1955 Chevy 150 Sedan.
The switches are marked and cut into the door panels, right over the existing crank handle holes. The upholstery trim retainer rings are installed into the cut holes and the metal tabs on the rings are bent towards the back of the door panel. These rings are only used when mounting the chrome switches into vinyl or cloth upholstery to hold down the upholstery. On steel or hard plastic, these rings should not be used. Note that the cardboard door panel has been cut out in a rectangle, but the vinyl has been cut in an "X" shape from corner to corner.
A little sheet metal also needs to be trimmed on the door to allow room for the back side of the switches and connectors. We don't want our switches and wiring to short out on the sheet metal. Also note the the edges of the hole in the sheet metal will be covered with duct tape before the door is reassembled to further discourage shorting.
The blue and black wires extending from the switch connector are then connected to the blue and black motor wires.
