300D power window conversion to manual

I got a 79 300D that's wonderful, beautiful, and perfect in every way except for some consistently irritating electrical problems with the power windows. I'm finding them to just be one more thing that can go wrong with the car, and would rather have manual, crank-style windows.

Has anyone here successfully made such conversion on one of these cars?

You need the manual window lifters and you need to drill a hole in the boarding at the exact spot for the crank. Getting the electric window lifter out and the manual lifter in is pretty easy.

See how it is done in the Factory Service Manual:
72 Doors

There is a specialised forum about the W123:
