I have managed to lose the keys to my 300ZX, it is sat in the garage (SORN), I can start it remotely to keep it turned over regularly. I have now run out of places to look for the keys and I must look at other options now, any suggestions?
Not pleasant ones, but try to source a set of locks and an ignition barrel, then cut off the ignition barrel and fit the new one. I don't envy you though, as that won't be fun.
I had a similar problem with an old Ford Capri, when my dad snapped the key in the lock. I fitted remote central locking, cut off the ignition barrel, re-routed the ignition wiring, wired in a hidden switch, a hidden push start and had an immobiliser with a fob, that HAD to be in the car for it to start fitted. No one ever stole it. But to be fair, I don't think anyone ever tried.
Interesting, I didn't know that was possible? Suppose it depends which car the glovebox came from, so in the case of my 300, that information is sadly useless, lol, but to many that would be good to know.
Locksmiths are far more resourceful these days - had a customer break his only key in half in the door lock. The locksmith retrieved the broken stub, put the two bits together on a scanner and cut new keys from the scanned image. I was impressed - and all this in the back of a van at 10-30 at night.
Thanks everyone, I'll rip the place apart one last time this week end, then I'll check the glovebox, if there's no joy there I guess I'm crawling into the boot to get the lock barrel from there (the boot release doesn't work)
