Hey Kevin, thanks for the praise!
The 1/4 windows were a bitch to fabricate a way to utilize modern electric motor to get them to operate. The door windows are now electric too which was pretty easy once I orientated the motor and fabricated the necessary parts to make it work.
as for the interior panels ... I purchased pre-embossed materials and went that route for the center pieces and marine vinyl for the rest and the seats. Overall the 2 door panels I cut 3/16 panel board (sturdier than the original)
