With the lock actuators mounted, it was time to wire up the window switches and other controls. First up was the driver's side. The Electric Life kit has several options for the switch types you can use, but we just opted for a standard GM-style switch. The driver's switch has a four button control so you can work all four windows just like a modern car, and it acts as the power hub for all the windows. On the other windows, the single button switch is mounted in the same spot as the old hand cranks. But for the driver's side, we had to get out the cutting wheel to make a space for the four-button switch. The best way to do this is hold the switch up where you want to mount it, then outline with a marker as a cutting guide.
