Central Locking installation - help (UK)


I have a 1997 Ford Fiesta, 5 Door, Petrol 1.3.

I am trying to install central locking, I have a MAPLINS 4 DOOR UNIVERSAL kit... Just a few questions...

I have just opened up the inside of one of the panels of my car doors to get a feel...

1) there is some protective stuff holding some sort of foam around the soor, its like foam glue - anyone know what this is so i can glue the foamy stuff back after I am done?

2) How can I put the controller thing under the dash? the wires seem very lonmg, do you think i could get away with leaving it in the drivers door?

3) Where do I connect the red and black wires to and how (the battery but where abouts?)

4) and the biggest stumbling block, how do i hide all the wires in the door? for example, how will i get the wires into the back doors? I am guessing the wires will have to come out of the doors at some point because the door splits from the rest of the car so where do the wires go..?
