Hi all, I am looking for recommendations for a kit that will work with a 65 Coupe for Central locking, with possibly a boot option and/or an auto Power Window close. The Power Windows are already installed.

I tried a local kit and the actuators weren't strong enough, so looking further afield and wondering if anyone has used some of the myriad of US kits with success.

This will control all that. You will need to add a boot release solenoid & central locking solenoids first though.

If you mean the solenoids wearnt strong enough it most likely means your door lock mechanism needs adjusting. They dont require much grunt to lock & unlock when they are working properly.

I have solenoids here. Same type as I always fitted to hot rods.

Mongoose does the kits you are looking for. I agree with Steve about the force needed for the door locks. The gun style actuators that exist in most kits should be good enough - if not, the door lock mechanisms in the car need some form of attention to loosen up.
