Well, I finally got a chance to install my Christmas present. I put in a power lock system with remote (MES lock system with Avital2101 keyless remote).
Not hared to install. Just need constant 12V, switched 12V, and ground. Took a bit of time to pull the wires in place of the vacuum lines, but pretty straight fwd. The lock mechanisms fit between the glass and the inner door shell so no big modifications. Came with 2 remotes. Locks when you start the car and unlocks when you turn it off. Locks/unlocks with the key on both front doors and with the two remotes.
All the original vacuum actuators had at least one of the bellows rotted out and many bad connections in the vacuum lines in the body.
Slowly making a modern classic.
