Anyone ever use classictruckglass.com 60-63 one piece windows?

I ran across this youtube vid and he stated the kit came from classictruckglass.com. I looked them up and they have a power and manual version (I prefer manual) and it looks like a nice kit but I cant find any threads about people who have used them so dont want to blow almost $400 and have buyers remorse. Also I'm correct that there is no difference in GMC or chevy windows right, since they only list them to fit chevy.

I like the wing windows in these trucks but I also love to drive with window down and arm on the sill, the windows are currently bit small for me to lay arm up there in comfortable position.

Well I actually found the write up he did here for the power set, looks pretty straight forward. If no one else chimes in I may end up shelling out the cash for these in the manual style.

Im also interested in hearing any feedback. By the time i rebuild all 4 of my door and vent glass it would cost more then buying 2 kits. All 4 door glass openings are equal on my 61 crew cab so nothing has to be modified.

I talked to the guy that owns vintage glass at the charlotte auto fair. He said power was the way to go because it was able to drop down easier in the back. The two kits look the same.(vintage and american auto glass) I am going to order the electric kit when i do my truck. It looks like both kits leave a little piece of glass sticking up.

I now realize that vintage glass just sells the glass and felt. You have to use an aftermarket regulator

Is Classic truck glass owned by one of those companies?

I have the power window kit from classic truck glass. The kit cost around $750 if I recall. It's a really nice kit. I'll post some pics later (at the hospital right now). Post your questions and do what I can to answer them.
Classic truck glass is a mom and pop style shop in Southern California. Nice people and good with tech support. They are the original makers of the kits.
Travis from AZPROPERFORMANCE installed the manual kit in his 63 C10 (you can find it in the projects section).
