Top post Adam, my only question is that if I use my standard Exec door trims just how bodgy will it look? - Door trims up here are $50+ each and even then they are not 100% and usually rain damaged so I stand to save $200 by keeping my original trims.
im sure if you looked around you could find some cheap grey plugs to cover the holes wich wouldnt be too bad and in the back you could possibly cover the holes with the rear switches with a little cutting

or if you liked you could cover them with tweeters

does anyone know if there any good?
the thing with these ones is they use the regulators in the doors already..

so you still have a lump with a plug coming out the door

but ye if you dont mind that they will do the job

you take the handles off but you have a cover that goes over the winder cog so there will be a plug the covers it that sticks out like a winder

No problems - sold the horse and now on a bike. One thing you possibly forgot in the post on power windows is 4 X Bandaids in the 'tools required'. Every time I take a door trim off to fix a regulator or lock I'll cut myself on those sharp edges and donate blood to the car.
