If they are anything like the regulators in other cars that I have worked on, it will probably be that crappy white plastic that broke. Worst case scenario you could pull the door panel and figure out how to keep the window full up with some vise grips or something.

I would like to take this opportunity on the first day of my weekend after consuming my first beer and waiting on a pizza to inform you on what I did today: I dismantled my front axle to replace the leaky passenger side axle seal for the third time in a year. I also sleeved the axle tube and added a Superior Discovery passenger side axle shaft. I am hoping that this solves my perpetually leaky axle seal problem. Seems like I did a lot more, but I guess that's all I did. It is back together and passed the checkride test with no issues. Yet. I also spent a considerable amount of time pondering how I am going to build a steel target tree to shoot at. I have completed the pondering and I believe I will start construction tomorrow. After a morning bike ride. That is all. Please discuss.

So are you going to use AR500 steel for this target? Also is it going to be just a round shape or would you make it torso shaped? With that what do you have in mind for a stand/mount?would you paint the surface or leave it bare?

Im interested on how your stand turns out. Are you doing spinner plates or the kind that you knock down?

Well Puck, I'm glad you asked. First, it has to be able to be taken apart for transport in my awesome jeep. So that is really the part that complicates matters a little bit. Second, I would like to use steel I have laying around which would negate the hardened AR500 stuff since I don't have any laying around. It would not be torso shaped. What I have in mind is a base with a single piece of angle extending somewhat straight up. Pieces of tubing about six inches long welded to the back side of the angle also vertically. Round 3" or 5" steel plates that fit on or into the vertically mounted pieces of tubing. The plates would stick out to the side of the vertical angle iron. So in theory, when you hit the steel plate, it swings around because it is hinged in the tubing. And stuff.

Spinners so I don't have to reset anything. If I do it right.... which might be improbable.

So the angle iron would be used for deflecting an incoming round should you aim a tad too low?

Sounds like a great idea. But if the steel is not hardend, wont any rifle round penitrate the target face?

You don't shoot steel targets with rifle rounds closer than like 400yds! Even then, they may go through. Pistol only...preferably non jacketed
Or hollow points. Fmj, it needs to be hardened.
Go to auto zone and get the window reg, otherwise you're going to have tape adhesive on the paint when you're done. They're less than $100!

I made some steel targets when I lived in az. 5" rounds that rotated basically when shot so you usually had a showing target. I made them out of 3/8" cheapo nothing special plate that I doubled up and welded around the edge. Only shot 9mm at it, cheap white winchester box stuff and I'd definitely say I got my money's or well labor's worth out of them.

If you have all the parts cut out and just need something welded up let me know and I can buzz something up for you if needed. I'll maybe even weld it better then I did Marn's first shock tab! LOL
