these switches will cover up the old manual windows stud sticking out.
just add the motors inside the door to the factory metro regulator and install the door button pods.

hello again
yes i did strip the headliner and recover it myself. the cardboard was a little old and wavy, but what do ya do? i couldnt get the waves out.
i also recovered the console with the same material.
there is alot of wiring to do, and alot more if you want the MPG and so on to work as well.
took about 2 days but it turned out nice.
the window switches are next, they will cover up the old window manual stud for the handle, and they will be electric windows.
also i installed the auto dimming mirror along with the console.
it is very nice to have a dimming mirorr in these cars. seems even if they have there lights on dim behind you, you could still read a book???
thanks for the compliments, if anyone wants to perfrom this install, please dont hesitate to ask.
thanks for checking it out
ron

the console gets held in place by 2x2 wooden blocks that are siliconed to the under roof, JB weld wont work, dont even try it, its to ridgid.
had to use 4 of the blocks, they are 1/2 thick plywood, be careful with the screws, they have to be the right length.
also had to trim the console as well, to fit the profile of the metro headliner itself.
alot of prep work to do for the console, but in any job, its all in the prep work, for a nice install in the end.

Can you please post details on making the computer work (mpg etc..)

is this possible on a pre OBDII vehicle? what is needed? how etc... ?

Can any over head work or is this one special in that it can be "made" to work with other cars in some way?

I would REALLY like to install this or something like it in my metro's
