Converting manual to power

    This is kinda off topic when it comes to plowing but, it would make things easier for me if I could make this happen.

    My '76 GMC has manual windows and locks and I was wondering if anyone has ever put power windows and locks on a truck this old. Maybe find the workings in a salvage yard and swap them over?? Maybe there's an after market product you guys and dolls can recommend.

    Any ideas are greatly appreciated..

    Find a Suburban, most of them have power windows you can rob. The worst part is getting the wiring harness out of the dashboard (its a standalone piece that plugs into the fusebox an has connectors at the ends of the dash).
