you can get power window motors for around 30 bucks second hand then you just need the wiring and switches.

its pretty easy to do the conversion, i did my full power window conversion in about 5 hour.

Hi Mate, I did the full power window Conversion on my car recently. Dont know if you know this but theres a Tech Docu on Power Window Conversion: http://www.fordmods.com/forums/Power-Wi ... n-d21.html

Hope this helps. Its has everything youll need to do the conversion. PM me if you got any questions. I think it cost me to do all this about....i think i got lucky with the parts :wink:

The tech doco is quite good.

If you have a GLi, id suggest...

-4 Fairmont Door trims obviously, Could swap front top sections to loose the ghia badges, could swap GLi fabric trim panels on, would have to retrim rears with fabric off fronts perhaps to loose winder hole, or just use front section if it fits. Would be a nice touch to keep it matching.

-Centre Console Switch panel, plug and some wire.

-Door looms will make it easier, not sure if they plug up to a GLi body loom.

-Futura BEM, to allow the power window operation delay etc.

-4 Regs obviously, new aftermaket ones are on ebay for about 55 dollars, not sure on quality though.

Basically a matter of bolting/wiring it all up, you will have extra to add unless you add fairmont/futura looms.

Not sure of futura looms allow for rear windows in the rear doors, through the body loom and between the BEM, windows etc.

Hope that helps!
