Grabber Lime Restoration Update - Quarter Window - Power

Grabber Lime Restoration Update - Quarter Windows - Power.

Now that summer is over, ice cream season is over for my wife and I and I can get back to working on the Grabber Lime 429 Mach 1.    This is just a quick update on the quarter windows that are power.    Got the power window motors cleaned and installed.   The nice part is that they were still working when I took them out.   The tracks are cleaned and greased and the stationary brackets that they are attached to were beadblasted and painted (they were rusty).   Wiring is in good shape and next steps are put new rollers on the glass brackets along with new weatherstrips and install those next. 

 On a side note, if anyone is putting new speakers in their front doors and want the original speaker look, you can take your original covers off your original speakers and separate the metal mesh from the thick cardboard that is attached to the speaker.  When you install aftermarket speakers, most are the thickness of the cardboard, so you just have to add the mesh cover to them (otherwise they are too thick if you keep the old cardboard on them).  Attached is a picture.  [Image: IMG-9460.jpg]

Mike,

I am struggling with Door speakers now.  I have 2 originals, one with the metal cover and one without.  Finding an aftermarket speaker to fit that 3x9 or whatever size the doors took is my impossible task.

Mine will not be the concourse level of yours, and I plan to drive it with the radio on, so I am looking for decent sound quality.  Where did you find your speaker parts?  Do you have modern cones and speaker drivers, or are they the 71 style paper cones.  Please share your sources if you don't mind.

All a pleasure to see your handywork.

Do a google search there are shops that recone original speakers so you do not have to look for ones that fit. The pics are of NOS originals and show the box with part number. If you have PW has a special harness with both PW and door speakers in one harness. Very difficult to locate.

The car will start to come together fast now windows do take some time to get adjusted exactly right. That is going to be a beauty for sure.

I put in Ken Harrison Speakers in the door because I wanted good sound and they fit the opening perfect with the existing attaching points.
