Hi, Does anyone know of a kit to put central locking into an Elf?

Try evil bay. (Not something I would put on a mini, there is enough to go wrong without adding more!)

I have a Wood and Picket kit that was in my Cooper. Having got past the hard work of installing it, I didn't have a problem during the year and a half it was installed. I was able to fully retrive the kit from the wreck with the thought of installing it in my next Mini, however I now have a MkII Elf so I can't use it as it's intended for the wind-up window Mini doors. Would I be right in assuming that the lock mechanism in a MkIII Elf/Hornet is the same as the Mini's?

I believe that would be an incorrect assumption. I've only ever seen my Elf, so don't know if they're all the same. Come to think, I should take a look at the extra set of doors I've got in the back of the garage. Funny I never thought of that.
But anyway, there's no locking lever on my doors, you just pull back on the latch handle to lock them. I don't think that Minis are the same, since I've seen pictures of Mini doors with a locking lever on the door panel. Not sure what the difference would be inside the door.

In that case my kit won't work on a MkIII either then. It works by linking a pivoted lever from the motor at the bottom of the door to the link from the locking lever.

I have ext hinged Hornet and looked into fitting a central locking system based on an alarm and actuating units from maplin which would have to mount in the rear side storage buckets.the gear was about £100 and I started rebuilding my engine and It went on the backburner.There is still alot of R and D to make It work but I intend to have a bash because I have run mine with independant locks and It's a pain.
