Does anyone have a good pic of the boot used to go between the door jam and the door for power windows/locks. I looked in OPG and they only had them for 64-67 and 68. Or is one available and if so what do they look like and how big are the holes you have to make in door and jam?

Pat,

I'm afraid I can't help you much. Perhaps posting this in the General Tech forum will yield more answers. If the factory assembly manual doesn't cover it, perhaps contacting technical support at YEAR ONE www.yearone.com or M & H www.wiringharness.com wiring harness will lead you in a new direction.

Rick, I would like to see a pic of original, just to get an idea of where the holes would be, and how big they should be, but I'd be open to using anything that isn't to big as too look goofy. Are they like the impala's and olds, and buick boats, I have seen those and they are huge.

I don’t know where to get the boots for the 70. Maybe a GM dealer. If you do find them the holes need to be 2 ½” in the body and 2” in the doors. The location (center) is marked by divits in the metal. The best way to cut the holes is to use knock out punches, a tool used to cut holes in electrical enclosures. You will get a cleaner hole than with hole saws. When I cut them on my ElCamino I had the fenders off. It will be hard to do without removing the fenders or the doors. The knock out set should be available at a good tool rental.
