Nu-Relics power window kit

I value the opinion of you guys on this forum and I need some feedback before I plunk down a grand on this kit.
http://www.nu-relics.com/chevelle-s/225.htm

Anyone use these or have a recommendation for some other product that comes with the OEM like/standard switches?

Could not have gotten this far with my project without your input.

Thanks again,
Nick

Re: Nu-Relics power window kit

Nick, I found the motors and regulators from a 70 Buick that I'm planning on using in my car. I rebuilt the motors and cleaned/degreased and painted the regulators. They are still in a box, and I haven't installed them yet, but I'd probably try to find an OEM set over an aftermarket set.

Re: Nu-Relics power window kit

Looks like a decent kit for the costs it better use over the counter motors so if one goes bad your not stuck shelling out a bunch of money to fix it just my thoughts. Back in the day power conversions in the after market were a motor in a box that bolted in place of the crank handle those things looked terrible.

Re: Nu-Relics power window kit

I installed the Nu-Relics kit on all 4 windows. Used their reproduction switches. Easy install, except adjusting the glass, which is a difficult task not related to the Nu-Relics parts. I give their product and customer service an excellent rating. Make sure you feed a solid 12V+ to the red power lead, otherwise you get slow roll up.

Another rub in all this is that I hope to use all the features of my 14 Camaro SS donor on my restomod project (link below), including the late model car features that cause the windows to drop down 1/2" when you open the door. Not sure that particular feature can be made to work, but I'm going to try.

I've never messed with power windows but wouldn't you be ahead of the game if you modded your Camaro ones? then the wiring will be the same.

Agreed, and I tried, but there are just too many differences. Thought about mounting just the motor onto the manual regulators - again too many differences.

Hope to use the switches from the Camaro, but that presents another issue - the Camaro has no back windows that open, so you're stuck with some other switches in the back and no ability to open the back from the front.

Of course, that led me to the kit we're discussing because it has all the switches.

Almost finished mounting and interfacing the Camaro mirrors and the door locks are done.

I have their power window kit in my 83 El Camino and I am happy with it but, X2 on Mike's comment. I need to run a bigger 12V wire to the passenger side window because it's slow on both up and down.

I have Nu-Relic power window kit and One Piece Products (wind wing elimination) window kit for my 65. I haven't installed them yet but I'm happy with both the quality of the kits and both Nu-Relic and OPP customer service.

Re: Nu-Relics power window kit

I like my nu relics, although... switches can suck, had to clean them several times for the contacts.

I do like them and it's a known quality setup otherwise
