    Well it looks like I haven't done anything on the car , but a lot of fiddling around with the outer door skin, fiber glassing sand etc to get the side view mirror to mount. I have had this door skin on the car, off the car so many times

    had to add a flange on the upper part of the door, REDO the mirror mounting area, finalized my outer window scraper brackets (3m8115 then FGP). Added some wood blocks and bolts to mount the skin to get a better idea of how it all coming together

    While waiting on a cable to do my inner door latch release, Fiber glassed the outer door skin in a few needed areas

    The gaps were just to large for just dyna glass

    The bottom of the door was also to short.

    Also created a little flange on the door skin just above the handle.

    Nice thing about fiberglass I can lay it up and go do some yard work, come back and do the next bit

    Test wired the Cadillac Catera power mirror switch to the existing Fiero GT power mirror wiring, then the Murcielago side view mirror.

    Soldered up the catera switch to the fiero wiring, nice and neat

    back from vaca and on to the REDO

    Go figure had a little issue with the fiero wiring for the door locks. Not good to have the 12v supply exposed

    Made a mount for the MES Swiss made door lock actuator.

    Mounted the Chinese door lock control module

    Simple Man, if it is not too late, you might want to check out the PBS-II keyless unit by DigitalGuardDawg,com I have installed many of these and find them to be well suited and tech supported. The five channels are easy to program and give the option for keyfob door poppers and keyfob accent lighting among other things. The lights flash and it has all the other typical functions. It is going to be more pricey but it is exactly what is needed. Also comes with push button start and billet starter button. The adjustable arming is another great feature. Talk to Adam 916-235-9585.
    76, the system I purchased does all I need it to. locks, unlocks and flashes parking lights.
    If the China system fails viper is my next option.

    Thks
