Had an idea to fill the holes in a manual -> power window conversion

Well, I think I've had a pretty good idea to save myself the $ and hassle of finding inner panels w/o the crank hole. Haven't done it yet, but check just throwing it out there...

Take the window crank handles, and cut off the handle so you just have the round portion that would bolt onto the crank assembly. Put in an LED. Glue to the door, facing the pockets. Viola! Pocket lights!

I'm going to try it when I finally make the leap from crank to button...

not a bad idea... or get some lights and hook them up to your domelight so when you open the door it shines on your interior...

Well, I have enough light between the OHC and the dome light. I'm thinking LEDs tied to the illumination bus. Not sure if they'll be switched yet. Guess I'll have to see how bright they would be.
