Post '46 Vent Window Gear Replacement

Both vent windows had stripped gears when Ibought the car. I purchase two kits, 11A-7023402-GR, (made inTaiwan) from DC. The gears in the kits were excellent and fit verywell. The rivets were too small 3/16" vs 1/4" dia. and almosttoo short to peen over even if they were the right diameter. The springsin the kits were the right size, but lacked I tension compared the originalspring. I couldn't get 1/4" rivets locally, so I used1/4"X3/4" NC bolts and locking nuts. Assembled nicely and thewindow/cranks work just like new.

I also used lock nuts instead of rivets. Worked fine. There is ample room.
