Both driver and passenger side windows are very slow going up and will not fully close unless the doors are open. They are also not going up next to the weather stripping and have to be pushed in from the outside of the car to get a good seal. Has anybody got some suggestions on a fix? I feel that there may be multiple problems with my situation. Is it the motors, springs, or guides? Maybe all of the above???? I am almost through the build and am getting down to the pain in the rear stuff. My son's birthday is April 8th and I am trying to get to the finish line on time. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance,
Father/Son

you could have several things going on.. weak motors, dirty tracks with dried up grease slowing it down,front guide roller misaligned. as to fitment, you can remove the interior panel and there are multiple adjustments available.. you can tilt the glass in by pushing the top track adjustment brkt outward .. there are stops in the track that limit upward travel, there are two bolts ,midway up the door, that allow you to rotate forward or back .. there are slide adjustments on top, that allow you to move the whole thing straight forward or back.. .. sometimes, tho, you may get it as close to perfect ,closing and operating correct, but still not fitting a weatherstrip..you will need to shim that weatherstrip .... I find the easy way to get close is to loosen everything, close door and put up glass.. get it right , then tighten all the bolts ..it can be a bitch, have patience

Fish is right, the windows are fully adjustable after taking the door panels off. Just takes some time to figure it out. Slow motors are usually caused by bad connections or replacement wires that are too small. The motors draw high amperage so any restriction to that amperage will drastically slow them down.

toobroketoretire,
Any idea what the amp draw should be? I am going to be pulling the door panels off and go through the checks suggested; the correct amp draw on the motor would be a check i could I could put behind me. Anyone interested in seeing the results of this three year build? My son and I bought a rolling chassis, no motor, tranny, rear end, or interior; or even wheels and tires?

Thanks for the input,
Peace,
Father/son
