make a 89 door fit a 92 or 93

Have you done so much to the car today that it just doesn't fit into one section, or are you too damn lazy to split it all up? Either way, this is the section for you.

make a 89 door fit a 92 or 93

I had a dent free door on an 89 that was the wrong color, and I had a extremely dented door on my 93.

Sure there are other FAQ's out there but I wanted to be as close as possible.

So how do you take a manual door and convert it to power windows.

Start with this.

And end up like this.

Measure and mark the area to cut and drill.

You have to drill a 1/4 inch hole 1 1/4 inch from center to center above the top hole.

You have to make room for the tweeter by expanding the top hole to with in 3/4 of an inch from the outside
of the mirror adjuster hole.

Lastly you have to expand the hole for the speaker to accommodate the larger 93 speaker.

I have outlined in blue the area to be cut.

And you end up with

I test fitted the inner panel prior to getting the paint applied.

Tomorrow when I am finished painting the door I will snap a pic.
