    I can get a set of nice doors for 40$ only problem is they are auto window from obs and I have a bricknose with mAnual will they bolt up right? How hard to go from manual to auto or auto to manual? And changing locks?

    You mean electric instead of auto?
    They will bolt up, but the interior panel line won't match the dash.
    Locks are easy to swap.

    I currently have manual windows and the door I might get have electric windows and are from obs, I was hoping to swap out my current door panels onto these doors and convert them to manual if things would line up right? Use my current door parts on these new doors basically use the new doors for their shells and glass and attach my panels and manual window set inside them?

    I don’t think the door shells are any different. I think the manual regulators will bolt in. For 40$ it’s worth the gamble to me if I needed clean doors.

    Pretty sure they're the same. You will have to drill some rivets to get the hardware out, but that's not a big deal. Its VERY unlikely that ford would use a different stamping between manual and electric windows. Everything about a mass produced vehicle revolves around economies of scale, so having two separate stampings for manual vs electric windows wouldn't make sense.

    Just do yourself a favor and double check the bottom door edge to make sure they are in fact rust free. Once rust gets in, the only real fix is to cut it open. Nothing can stop rust once it gets into a lap-joint like that.

    Rust isn't a big thing around here in Oregon trucks from
    The 70's still drive around with minimal rust. but yes I always look over a used part, that's how you get the good deals! Lol

    Oh yeah, what we call "rust free" up here is already falling apart.

    I'm hoping you'll post back if you try this. I would assume they would interchange.

    And if you do swap the manual windows in, send me the motors lol!
