I bought a universal power window kit for this a couple of years ago.Wasn't really keen on the fitting set up.The window crank has the splined drive on it which sticks out about 40mm.Recently thought I may be able to make an ally cover which would hold the tweeter speaker for the sound system and hide the window crank.Decided that's the go.Started to fit up the winder motor.Really works well and is very smooth and quick to operate.I had already fitted the one piece window regulator.I have found some door jamb spring loaded contacts to transfer the power across.Don't know yet,because nothing will work with the door open. I bought another temp gauge with a chrome bezel to match the VW gauges.Might see if I can get the cover off and paint the needle white.

Bent the new panel on the corners to sit tight against the dash.Painted with the hammertone finish.Another job done.

I restored an Oval fuel tank for this-new 10mm supply and 8mm return and fuel guage sender for my 68 Speedo.Have now decided that it's too crowded under the hood with the air con etc, and the tank holds only about 8 gallons.Will make a new ally unit to hold maybe 15 gallons and fit it in the tray behind the cab.Cut the filler from a wreck I have.Will graft that into the driver's side of the tray.Painted the shifter cover to match all the other grey stuff.Have finished the installation of all the power window stuff to one door.Was going to make new door cards and cover with the left over stuff from the seats.Made a trial trim from aluminium and will paint it body colour.Will use some stainless body mouldings from a 1303 I have plenty off.

How much fuel pressure going back to tank? 😀

I have never put a guage on it.It's all standard Subaru stuff.I have made it all with the fittings used for normal air line pressure to take 150 PSI.
