When it came time to start planning the second iteration of the 1968 C10 build, I decided to go with a more modern, contemporary spin on the accoutrements I wanted to add to the old hauler. A little “out with the old, in with the new” type attitude, all the while maintaining the truck’s original aesthetic. I didn’t want anything too radical so at first glance, one would be hard pressed to point out the upgrades.
A perfect example of one such upgrade is the Electric-Life power window kit we’re installing this month. Externally, it’s impossible to tell that the modifications have been made. Each new regulator is mated directly to an electric motor and the whole unit bolts inside the door in the stock regulator’s location. Combined with their power crank switch that retains the stock window crank, all the modern components are housed inside the door, while externally it appears untouched. All the modern convenience combined with that classic look we love about our old trucks; a truly perfect marriage if you ask me.
