Pic of plastic cover over power seat

Don't think the seat is all the way
I'll see if I can hook up power and put it in its lowest position

Managed to get one of my rear power windows working today
Came out really great - just need to lower the stop so the top of the window will line up with the weather trim
You may or may not recall the cvt had manual windows
I kept the power option out of my HT and had them modified to fit the conv
I then got started on my power top hydraulic hoses/pump
After much delay as the ones I ordered some time ago turned out to be incorrect (can't understand why as I ordered them at the same time as the cylinder and said it was for a 59 Plymouth). Sometimes I wonder why I ever started this project as it seems to be one hurdle after the other
Anyways had them extended as one side was too short
Connected them all
Bled them out several times but couldn't seem to get the passenger side working as quickly as the drivers side
Read up on the manual and it says to do it several times which I did
Anyone with a cvt experience this?

On another note as most of you are starting to have cold days we're about to have a week with average temp of 94degf
Summers coming!

Amazing what sleeping does to the brain
Woke up in the middle of the night and realized I'd put both extended hoses on the same side
Given the restriction of the joiner I assumed this may have been the cause
Went out into the garage swapped them around and walla problem solvered
Then went back to bed!!

Nice!

If you need any vert related pics let me know, I've got the rear seat and armrests out so I can take pics easily.
Before you install all the power window stuff make sure to remove the square plates welded in the interior (I can see it in one of your pics) where normally the handle is

That's it! They welded those plates in for cheap windows.

I can make a pic tomorrow as I need to remove my panel

Here you go!
If you don't remove the plate the switch and connector won't fit

Thanks Matthew
Removed them today
I note there's not much room to feed the cables thru
Not sure if it's because I have the 2 door hard top motors but it looks like the wire will get pinched when the windows go up and down?
Managed to install the other rear window and it's working
All hydraulics are in for the cvt motor
A small smile is slowly appearing as I complete another job :D
Again thanks for your support

Thanks Matthew

Pics would be awesome

Now getting a start on the radio and record player
Looks like I'll need someone to look at it
The stock radios don't have a rear input connector required for the record player
I have a spare radio that low and behold has the input connector required
I'm trying to find someone who might be able to transplant it into the main radio and get it all working

Thanks Matthew

I've managed to find someone locally and reasonably priced to look at the radio -will see how we go

I was playing around with the power seat and noticed it was not working as it should

Noticed that the clutch wasn't engaging when trying to raise and lower the front of the seat

Took it apart and turns out one of the clutch motors plastic shaft was broken and coil was also broken - pretty corroded as the shaft was hard to pull out

Going to try one of my electrical locomotive friends to see if he or someone at his work can help

Never a dull moment

Cleaned gears ready to reassemble if all goes well

Hi Dan

I ended up cutting my main control mounting mould as it was too tight to house all the wires

see how you go
