Indeed. It took me exactly 1/2 hr per side, including removal of the inner 
door panels and old parts to install Vaders. That included the time it took 
to scrape undercoating off part of one inside door skin so the window would 
go down ALL THE WAY TO THE BOTTOM- one more advantage that cannot be gotten 
with stock linkage no matter what motor drives the system. The reason there 
is no step-by step video for Vaders is, its so bone-simple to install them 
that a video is completely unnecessary. Photos are included in Ted's 
instruction sheet with the parts. I reviewed the installation in Judy's car in the 
Oct 2006 POCA News. Still happy with my installation-
