Wow, you actually went ahead with this... Cool!  You are tempting me
to do likewise.  The only reservation I have is the fact that I like
the ABT dash pod with the auxiliary gauges high up.  With the new
style dash I won't be able to do that.

I got the entire power window system wiring harness and control relay
from a 5000S Turbo and retrofitted it to the 4000.  Thus, it has the
nifty feature of one-touch rolldown on the driver's window and retained
power until the driver door is opened.  I also added the interior light
control relay from the 5000S Turbo, which provides for the delay
dome light shutoff, etc.
