Probably a good idea to post what they did, if you can - provide some closure for those folk who tried to help you, as well as the next one who is looking to do the same thing! I still have to dig up my stuff - went through this many many, years ago and still have the lock cylinder laying around somewhere!Well, I brought the whole to Locksmith, they did remove and rekey to my original key. They know how to remove it. sorry, I forgot to ask how he removed the cylinder, as I was so happy pay and drove away.
tjcross: I know exactly what you mean about the 'lude - I had a couple of Trans-ams, a LS400, VW GTi, and Camaro - all except the LS400 were manual transmissions, and hands down, the 'lude was the funnest!
