I'm trying to find info about the best regulator type to use on a VT. I have modified some FG Ford ones but they barely push the glass up. Any help would be great. I'm in Aus so i cant go down the road and get a USA part. Also now i have a small crack in the bottom of the glass near the bracket its about 20mm long does this mean its stuffed or has anyone had a crack repaired (made a stupid mistake trying to bend a bracket) please tell me someone else has done this my last door glasses cost $900 delivered to QLD Australia from AGP.

Take the glass to a auto glass shop to see if they can stop the crack. It's a 50/50 chance it may work or it may crack more. If you leave it as is. It will eventually continue to crack

If the crack starts at the edge and goes toward the center of the window where it ends, it will probably grow.
If the crack starts and ends at the edge of the glass, (like across a corner) it is done cracking and should not grow where it will be seen.
This is of course with laminated glass. Tempered glass would have been shattered with any attempt at a crack.

If you are using the ford channels or any donor channels you
should also remove the rubber lip guides inside the channel itself
Before> M After> l l <(channel from gap view)
This can be done with a razor blade, that way the window can
slide up and down easier.
