Made a bit more progress on my power window install.
I've got both front and rear left side wire conduit positioned, holes cut and both doors opening and shutting with no interference.

Took some time to get the exact location for both conduits as the B pillar did not have any location dimples from the factory but with the help from Mikey {55wagoncrazy} I was able locate the dimple on the door and simply work back from that.





















Back door has the conduit attached to the B pillar and then extends into the door as it closes it was very tricky to get it all to line up in the correct position.

Looks like you got it all "fingered" out. Meaning you spent lots of time testing and figuring to get it reverse engineered.

Make sure you test fit the RH front door hole for the wire harness. The switch end of the harness will have to go through the hole. So you may need to make the hole more oval top to bottom than the round hole you show. The wire harness end on all the other single switches ends should have no problem going in. And just a small point. The door conduits will need to be installed AFTER the wire harness is fished through. The factory used hex head screws so they can be installed and the screw turned in, in the tight areas between door and post. The conduits should have some metal tabs on the underside, these must be open for the harness install. They were folded up once the wire harness was run through them. The conduits are painted the color of the jambs.

The wire harness protector shields you made looked well done in the photos.

Glad I could help you with a few photos

I laid out the power window wiring harness, fitted the left rear regulator, finished up all the holes to feed the wires through the B pillar and the doors.

The passenger side should be much easier to do now that I have figured out how to do it.








Using the metal template provided, you bolt it up to the two bottom holes of the manual regulator and then use the pilot holes to drill for the power regulator.





The power regulator then bolts up to the four new holes.
