On powering the vent windows:
First generation chrysler minivans had rear quarter power windows. These came in manual or power. A teleflex cable was in the headliner from the the front of the car to the back to make it work.

I'm very interested to see how your Suburban turns out, too!

I've thought that if I had to do this over again, I might start with a 2500 Suburban instead of another Caprice. The wide availability and compatibility of truck parts with that platform would have made this project much easier. And, there are times I've found myself wishing that I had four wheel drive (despite already having a selectable locker and mud tires).

I pulled some quarter window motors 6 or 7 years ago. I forget now exactly what they were from (probably a Nissan van).

I've still got them in storage somewhere--just haven't gotten around to doing it. Clearly, it isn't a pressing need.
