Rudy;
If you don't have a FSM (factory service manual) I'll try and get a scan of the manual concerning this.

simple and easy

I have found that the electric windows from an 86 or 87 Isuzu Impulse work really simple for a GT conversion. The Impulse has a cable spool combo just like the GT, using the Impulse electric motor and cable/spool along with the nylon guides, simply remove the the GT crank/spool/cable and upper an lower guide pulleys, install the Impulse nylon fixed guides at the pulley location on the GT [top (Impulse) guide at bottom on the GT guide location) and bottom (Impulse) guide at top GT guide location], drill a hole to fix the guides into position as they where on the Impulse originally but inverted for the GT as indicated above.
I told Bob Tidwell I would get him some pictures of the swap this week end and show the install procedure, it is very simple and works perfect I will try to post this weekend time pending an article on the Impulse electric window.

KT GT, I for one will be waiting for the article as well as pictures, as I plan to add electric mirrors to the "Red Gt". It's gutted, primered and waiting to be pulled into the shop and the inside door panels etc are off. It would be quite timely to do everything in the doors at once. Jarrell

Windows

I just picked up another set the other week but have been chasing Opels from OKC to San Antonio for the past 4 weekends in a row and have not had a chance to do any thing but fill my shop and back yard up with Opels. If you don't mind seeing pics taken on a cluttered work bench or pathway of the shop I will attempt to do it this weekend.
