    Hello all, I have some interesting problems with my 87 el camino just like all of my other unique problems. My windows have essentially never sealed, so I went to mikes montes and got all new weatherstripping, window guides, sweeps, felts, essentially everything is new. I removed all the old...

    So I got an 87 El Camino a little while ago and it has always had loose door windows. Many people said to check the window guides and I knew both of them were broken so I bought two of them and took apart the door cards and I am quite confused. My passenger side has the adjustment with the...

    I need to replace the frame of my driver's side vent window - the hinge part is broken. I could buy the whole vent assembly, but I prefer only the frame, window, and hinge. My window is tinted and can be reused if needed. If someone knows of a reproduction please tell me, I can't find...

    Anyone else have a sunroof in their car? I have the original build sheet and it says nothing about a sunroof and I'm fairly certain it's not a factory option. Is it a dealer option maybe? It looks good and the quality is great, doesn't leak or anything and it's a kind of one way mirror glass...

  8. Body Restoration
    What is the trim around the rear window made out of? Also can it be chromed I was trying to get a quote and the man on the phone said he thinks it's some kind of aluminum or stainless steel and may just look like chrome. It has been painted over on my el camino and we chipped some of the paint...

    There is some sort of clip or something holding this bugger on. I've tried to get at it with a screwdriver and even extra small needle nose pliers, but no dice. My Chilton's manual says i need some special tool but I have not been able to find it in stores or online. Surely someone around here...

  11. Body Restoration
    During a recent rain, I noticed that I now have a leak coming from my rear window. There are no visible rust holes in the metal around the window. From reading on here, I see that this is not a new issue for Elkys. Anyway, I stopped at a body shop and they gave me an estimate of ~$250 for...

    I've looked around the forums and seen this posted before, I got a link to a none power one. I was just wondering since those posts were a few years old, has anyone seen a power rear window kit? Or How hard would i be to make one power? I know anything is possible if you have deep pockets, but...
