Can someone give me the rough dims on one of those. I dont have any to sample, but want to throw those in with my order for window brackets. No reason not to model those and have them cut along with the window bracket.

I can to it from scratch easily enough, but making it look indistinguishably the same is some peoples preference (mine included)

Nobody wants to say "hey, its about this long" even? Allright, Ill do my own bidirectional unit.

If you ever want to know why there are passenger and driver side versions for these things, its not about cost, its about the guys on the floor and the guys who run them being too stupid to understand "either side". An item like that confused them. They would label items as PS and DS that were not specific.

I don't do anything with the CNC mostly because I don't have one... I do have a neat sign machine that handles 5ft x 10ft sheets of material - but it is similar but different :)

ANYHOW, I snapped a few pictures. If you need better specs, I do know how to read a micrometer or a ruler...

That's perfect thanks!

If anyone is ever curious, you can always just pull the window reel handle off and it works as a door handle instead.

Yes Sir. That is the way my M1089 was when it arrived. One handle for everything that was moved from position to position :-( . Also had to turn the door pulls over - so the "finger hold" was down rather than up. Not quite sure why it was turned the way it was since it was a water trap if the windows were down.

Since this is related, if anyone is feeling lazy and cheap, or in a bind, Doorman (heh) part# 775-5502 is 15 bucks off amazon and fits the windows and door handles. You need to drill out the door handle hole on the interior panel to 3/4" min. The bolt is an M6-1 x 22mm flat head for the window, I think its probably got room for another 2mm of depth, but 22 fits for sure.

That PN is the chrome version, but obviously there is also a black one.
