    As I am working on my windows right now I noticed that in the door, around the access for the window mech, are 4 threaded holes. Can anyone tell me why there are 4 threaded holes there?

    It's a 70 and there are the 4 holes that hold the crank on but there is also a rectangle hole that is more to the bottom center and has 4 threaded hole around it and about 6x10 inches. What kind of plate cover? I was wondering if it might be something more than a window access?

    just an access cover. it's handy for getting the window channel on and off the regulator.

    yeah, there is supposed to be a plate there. I just got new doors, and I am going to turn my old doors into half doors. Since it wont have a window assembly anyways you can have my old plates if you want them.

    I have some doors on a 71 and the dont have the cover but they do have a full door panel which is kind of rare I think

    yours might have had door panels that were removed?
