My original plan was to reuse the old lock T handles to work the locks manually but I ran into a issue with lever interference. So I got a set of piston door lock knobs and some 3/16Ē rod. I threaded the rod on one end and figured how I was going to miss all those rods and leavers. I bend an offset in the rod and it works great. Then I needed to attach it to the power lock actuator I came up with this adapter seems to work pretty good if I say so.

The window channel was molded into the inside of the door. In order to insert the latch I needed to cut a hole through the channel. That is when I noticed that the lock mechanism was sticking through the channel. So I needed to motify the lever.

My thoughts were to just cut out the holes for the latches and mount it to the door directly. It was then I noticed that the edge of the door was not square with the inside. It is a good thing I have a set of install adapters. I trimmed down the adapters and fitted them to the door and spot welded it in place.

The hole that the original latch went through needed to be closed so I welded it shut.

I picked a set of these door latch handle adapter things at a swap meet. They seemed to work well but in order to keep me door handles in the same location I needed to modify them. First I cut the one side off and weld it to the other side so the original inside door handles will still work. This last picture shows plan B the shorter arm didnít give me enough clearance to work properly.
