Okay, somehow I accidentally posted this while I was typing, so let me pick up where I left off.

The only thing holding me back from jumping in with both feet is the lock. There'* not a key available for the donor trunk lid. The way I see it, there'* two possible alternatives"

1. Have a locksmith re-key the cylinder in the replacement trunk lid
2. Swap the lock cylinder from my existing trunk lid.

So which alternative is more feasible?

I appreciate your replies.

Pull the clip off your lock in your old deck lid, put in new deck lid. Easy.
