    stripping parts from mk3 - help :(

    I posted the other day about this in general chat, about being offered parts from a mk3 sri or whatever the hell it is for next to nowt.
    Im about to go and start stripping the parts I want, however, theres a couple of things I need to know about.

    Im going to be removing the electric door mirrors, now, obviously I need the switch unit from the door, and the loom behind the door card, but, are there any relays etc that I will need in addition to this?
    The central locking - will it be worth removing it, or shall I just get a central locking kit when I get a new alarm with remote locking/unlocking?
    The clocks - will it have a full compliment of warning lights as on mine, as the car Im taking it from doesnt have an airbag, and mine does.

    Thanks

    Oh, my, effing, god.
    I have just stripped some of the parts from this astra, only to find that I need not only the whole loom from the doors to attach these mirrors to, but also the entire under-dash loom as well, as my door multiplug has only 2 connectors, for the speakers, and the SRi has about 12 connectors in the plug.
    So, I now have to decide whether its worth putting leccy mirrors on, or, if theres a way around replacing the entire loom.
    I need help
    Anyone???

    Ok, screw that, Im not removing the entire wiring harness from the interior of the car JUST so I can have electric mirrors.
    Ive just enough electronics expertise to maybe get them working without it, so Im just gonna have to have a play methinks.
