The thread was a great help. I put the power windows in my ute today and its a real easy job. The longest part was getting the window back on the runners again, but that wasnt too bad.
Just need some switches now! Here are some tips I found along the way when fitting this to my VS ute.

- I used M6 bolts which fit through the door and power window bracket after drilling out the existing rivets
- The auto down function will only work with some low BCM's although no problems with a mid BCM
- Since I just changed the low 148 BCM to a 150 BCM, I didnt want to go and get another mid BCM, so I bypassed the BCM by connecting the green/black wire from the BCM to the green/orange wire in the door loom.
This enables the drivers window to go down, although you lose the auto down feature and functionality.

Here are some pictures

how much did it cost for all the parts?

Switches were about $30 for two rear door ones (mine went in a ute) and regulators were about $40 odd each from Pick n Payless.
I got the additional switch loom from Pick n Payless as well.

If your going to go and remove the regulators from Pick and Payless, bring a drill with you :)
