if I'm understanding you right, you want to put the GL power locking mechanisms for the doors and the hatch into a DL? I believe its a direct bolt in but I'm not totally positive that the wiring harness is there. Might want a few more opinions:D

the wiring harness is really nothing. You could transplant an actuator from a GL or you could simply buy a new one from your local car stereo shop. They are farily cheap and it is really just a two-wire setup. On - push, Off- retract. Simple.

You can install power locks to a DL quite easily. For reference I put an Excaliber AL1000 alarm and power locks on my 87 Brat sometime in 1997. I used 3 relays and set it up for driver's select unlocking, i.e. push the alarm undo once and driver's side unlocks and push it again and the passenger side unlocks. For the Brat with 2 doors, this was unnecessary really, you may consider this for your DL.
