I've done it on a couple of cars before. It's pretty easy, and pretty cheap too. It's basically just a couple of plungers $15 pair, two solenoids $6 each, and either a two way momentary switch ($2) or hook it up to a car alarm. There's stuff all over the internet about how to do it exactly.

Here is a link to one type of actuator that I have used. If you can find the DEI one I think they are a little nicer. If you want to install an alarm you just need two actuators two 30amp relays and one or two switches.

yea its been done plenty of times, and it still easy to take the doors off, just unplug them with simple male/female connectors
