      Take the cables off, then loosen the pivot clip and pull out he pin. Flip the little doggy number 2 around again..The cam or locking ratchet number 2 has been known to spin around out of position on number 4.

      Plenty of other early model owners have done the speaker grille swap without issue. Plus, power windows are more trouble than they're worth (just look at all the "my power window won't go down/up - help!" threads for proof).

      What size do the pods run for speakers?

      No clue, but the '90s Cab owners can tell you.

      I can tell you that the European Cabriolets received those speakers/grilles and did not have power windows as standard equipment (which is why swapping them into the earlier Cabs is no problem):

      So havent gotten to much further but have started the motor break down....slowly. Been pretty busy

      Got it off the ghetto floor dolly and onto an engine stand





      Didnt need that intake manifold anyways.

      I Did get the valve cover off as well and the alternator just didnt get a pic. From the looks of the seals this motor was just rebuilt
