Power upgrade (pictures).

Well, I am half way through the process, and I have to tell you that it gets simpler and simpler as the minutes past by. At the beginning it looks scary to see 1000 parts and wires and not have a clue what they are for, but once you remove the door panel you get the idea and the process gets simplified. I don't plan to do a tutorial(yet), but I wanted to provide some pictures so you guys get an idea of the location I chose for the brackets, door lock actuator and window regulator, ah! and a view of the switches once installed, the whole thing looks stock and works like a charm.
FYI, I used the Colibri power window kit and the MES door lock kit, both from www.A1Electric.com

I hope the pictures help!

The orange thing is just a sticker; it's used in case you have to cut to adapt the covers for the hole. In the case of the Yaris there is only about 3mm all around that has to be removed so the cover goes in.

Thanks Hasher!.. I used the screws provided with the Sony speakers. After the pictures I took them off because I needed to route the cables from the power locks and windows trough the boot right behind them and decided that didn' want screws anymore, so I enden up riveting the spacers to the door, just like the stock assembly. You can use up to a 5 X 30mm screw for those holes though!

How did you get those power switches? Did they come with the kits? How did you install those?

Also, do you think this kit would work on my Yaris Sedan: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...category=50552

That would be a little dangerous!... No, but the kit suplies an "emergency" window handle that can be used if anything breaks.

Right above the fuse box. You have to test which wires are powered by the ignition being in the on position though.
