I almost lost my arm changing the window motor in my K5. Remember it's under tension when down lol. I suggest you use a coat hanger or the like to wrap around the track parts before you unbolt them.

Throw in some relays and they are fast as shit.
I find your ideas intriguing and would like to subscribe to your newsletter.

Convert the drivers side to manual, repair the passenger side.

I kinda like manual windows, but I can't reach the passenger side safely while driving.

I had manual windows as well and converted to power windows from A1 electric. Now my passenger side doesn't go up all the way so I have the "help" it up when I want to lower my windows. I'm pretty sure problem is with the motor?

Is that all, just run some power cable and use a relay so the existing motor power instead will trigger the relay? Why wouldn't GM supply the full battery voltage to the motor? Will the extra voltage hurt the motor?

I'm sure those questions were covered in that long-ass thread, but I'm hoping for some cliff's notes...

Not really

It was more like 'ZOMG I DID IT AND THEY WERK GREAT NOW'

But I'm pretty sure GM didn't think about relaying anything other than the turn signals and hazard lights on the square bodies.
Shit, I don't even know if my hazard lights are relayed.
