power window hole sizes in body

I am helping a buddy of mine to install power windows in his 67 Camaro and I need to know the exact size of the holes in the body and in the doors for the boots. I've done a search and it is not clear (to me) if the size is 2 inches, 1.900 or somewhere in between. I know the door is smaller, I have read 1 3/8 somewhere but is that the boot size or the hole itself ? Just want to make sure before I cut. Frank.

Re: power window hole sizes in body

i used a greenlee punch for 1-3/4 electrical conduint.i beleive it made a 1.90 hole in the cowl.

i used another punch 1 3/8 inch hole in the doors....


now i am pretty sure these are the correct sizes and produced a nice snug fit with the boots.

the best thing to do is get the wiring harnesses first!
then check the boots with your holes on another piece of sheetmetal....

Re: power window hole sizes in body

Traced the circle with a pencil with the help of a pattern, then drilled the pre-punched hole with the biggest drill bit I have which is 5/8 then enlarged it gradually using a die grinder with a carbide cutter. Took a while but I went slowly to make sure it was perfect, tried the boot many times before getting to 1.900 to make sure, finally 1.900 was exactly what was needed. Frank.
