Too much drill for that. It would strip the gears off the window hardware. A harbor freight drill would probably do better.

Yea the HF cordless drill is one the items that gives HF a bad reputation. I tried one out. Won't buy another even though it's only 20 bucks.

Does HF sell right angle drills? That would be best if they do. ; )

No. I only do that when I'm drunk.

Probably a retro power window kit from Auto Zone or O'Really's would be best.

Festool is the only way to go. Anything less would be amateurish.

It takes many nails to build a crib, but only one screw to fill it

Clever, but I need more exercise these days. I am more in favor of disabling the auto-windows of my car and installing a crank on each one.

I have a crank by the passenger window but she doesn't always ride with me.

No. I only do that when I'm drunk.
