Title: central locking C3
Post by: Bfit on July 13, 2012, 12:44:58 PM
I searched the forum for info in fitting central locking  to pre 78 C3
 Here is  my version  one, of how to do it  
I would like to fit two actuators to each door have some back up and do away with the key entry

One actuator is mounted on the cover  to access the door internals
the other will possibly be inside the door
Still working that one out.
I could go with coping the later 78 up idea for electric locking.

Yup!  Did this on my '77.  Was pretty easy actually.  :shades:

Works even better when everything is lubed up.  :rolleyes:

Early  C3 is easy as there is a large void in back of arm rest to surface mount actuator. My 78 had holes in the door from factory which lined up with Jaycar actuators. Is a bit harder to connect to door linkage as is on inside of door

I have a photo of a 79 door showing the rivets retaining the vette electric lock actuator inside the door .
I will mount an acturer inside the door and cut a hole for  the acturer rod to allow it to attach to the vertical lock rod of the earlier C3
I was hoping some else had already don't that .
Two actuators give back up for failure protection
