when i bought my car it came with some acuators that are off a EA or EB1 as the previous owner thought they would fit the in the plug where the smartlock acuators normally go. I only have two though are you interested?

Yeah dude i have a 30th anni S pack, its easier to cut the stuffin around and install a kit, cost me like 25 bux for the kit and thats the remote one, i never regret it now, i no longer scratch me car up when im drunk and tryin to get the key in the door lol.

oh yeah its rare to find an EA with factory fitted central locking as they were an option when they came out and for the extra options at the time it was like apart of a deal where you spend 5 grand extra for the extras lol. and therefore some people were just too tight

long live the mighty EA i say

well I might go looking around for some kits, I have tried the supercheap one on my old VL but it was a nightmare to install and I ended up giving up and taking it back.....

How hard are they to install on Falcons?

i have an eaII s-pac and it never came with central locking but i tried to install aftermarket central locking and although the front doors are easy enough the back doors are a pain in the a** as there is nowhere just right to mount the actuators

thats the biggest problem with aftermarket kits they have to be positioned almost directly underneath the lock (most neway)

BTW if anyone have pics of where their central locking (ford or otherwise) please let me know cause i'm still trying to figure out mine
