I've been working on a web shop for all of my door latches and the likes, and had it sitting in the background of my server at home for the last 6 or 7 months without actually advertising that it's there...

If you wouldn't mind taking a look at it at some point, and like this site - seeing if you can break it...
Paypal Payments are set up and LIVE as far as I know, so be aware of that if you go through checkout stages etc! I've had it in sandbox mode for months to test it and think I've got it running properly now....

It can be found here:
Marty's P38 Web shop...

I am hoping I can get it up and running and then list things as/when I get them finish and start fielding enquiries about parts through the site. I will look at moving it to it's own domain and probably web space at some point, but at the moment it seems to handle OK on my server!

Thanks in advance...

Looks good! I could do with a set of front door latches for mine. The actual latches and switches are okay but the lock motors have packed in - they will only start and run if they're at exactly the right position of rotation when you power them up.

Thanks for the look...

I am guessing that I don't have the ones that you need at the moment... R-reg... 1997? probably just after the swap over to the type with the loom that comes out, rather than the moulded connector.

I see a lot of them with failed/failing motors - especially the superlock motors, half of them never work when they get to me anyway, so they get disabled to avoid causing future problems.

If you want me to supply a set at some point then just drop me a message with which ones you need and I'll let you know when I have them in stock... you can be the guinea pig for a real order through the web shop if you like!

If I recall correctly they have a short "pigtail" with a multipin plug on the end. I'm pretty sure the locks are mechanically identical - maybe an adaptor cable could be made up?

Yeah, the original ones have the connector moulded in and the subsequent versions have the cable coming out to a 6way and 1way connector - until you get to 00MY where they finally just put all 7 ways in one connector....

I have thought about making an adapter cable - it wouldn't be that hard - I probably have enough connectors here to make a couple of jumper leads up already, though I may be lacking the male plug end. I know I can source the connectors, but not sure what cost they are. I'll look into it now, as i have 3 of the older style ones finished, tested and on the shelf...

Edit.. had a look and about £7 worth of connectors to make the adapter lead...
