I've got plenty of tooling, thankfully. I was wondering about any key-ways or the push-in style lockouts like most American cars have on their key cylinders.
Sounds pretty straight forward though, just a couple screws and they slide right out? I want to do this to eliminate the potential failure i'm having on the new car. I did some searching and chief tool's posts about cylinder failures has me thinking that's where my troubles are, probably. Then since the new car only has the valet key, i could swap door and trunk cylinders from the 89 and just have the true master key for all locks / ign on the newer car. Might sound like a bit of work, but not too much work to get the reliability i'm after.
I need to do some work on the 89 interior door areas anyway, one ext handle is snapped off and a window motor is clunking and stuttering like crap on the window upward motion. Ah, the joys of poorly lubricated stuff with these cars.
I believe in reincarnation... just the other day i saw an old lady turn into a driveway.
