    Hi,

    I'm looking into buying power window doors for my 1978 z28, that was originally manual window.

    Is the door window glass the same for power window and manual on a 1978 Camaro? Want to know if I can use my existing windows.

    Is there anything else I should take into consideration?

    Been searching the internet without success.

    Also, does anybody know how the center molding on these doors are mounted?
    Rivets?

    Thanks

    I'd suggest just buying the retro-fit power window hardware kits instead. I think you'll be way more $$ ahead than tracking down rust free, clean/straight 2nd gen doors setup with power windows. Plus you'll get to upgrade to better reverse polarity motors too.

    I would love to help you with that, but I can't. I live in the U.S right now, and my Camaro is in Sweden unfortunately.
