Drop spindles will have to be type 3 only, and will normally be 66 to 71 
style spindle. There are 2 ways of getting them. One is to find a set of 
Bert3's billet dropped spindles (he made 50 sets), or have Russel at Old Speed 
make you a set of welded dropped spindles.

Look in the Bentley manual. In the Body section, they cover windows.

You really want to keep the t-3 trans IF you can. It has better gearing 
that is more siuted to the car (keeps the rpms down, as the car will run 75+ 
all day long).
I hope this helps.
