they had "appearance" packages that had the factory body kit but not the big engine or anything cool.

as far as the doors and windows i havent had to do mine, my car is kind of babied i dont get alot of the problems others have. i have done a few others though and i would say definitely fix the windows first so you dont have to fight that. mark where the hinges where on both the door and the car before you do anything. if you know anyone that works at a body shop they have door holders to do it if not your just going to have to wrestle it, i would try to get some help. balance it on a jack with a towel on it and then get the bolts in.then you have to adjust it so it closes and the window seals

hopefully its the switch unlikely to be a fuse since you said they went out one at a time

When I replaced a window motor on my 99 TA the only tricky part was the assembly is riveted to the door inner panel, and the panel is SMC, not metal. I drilled out the rivets and replace them with nuts, bolts, and washers. Not really a big deal, but not as easy as just removing and replacing nuts on threaded studs (like the Bonneville).
