Pretty sure '82-'83 didn't have the tank shields.

Thanks for the suggestions Bruce. The tank protection product sounds good and I'll call around to see if I can get a lock shop that is accustomed to auto locks.

I might just use some steel wool or fine sandpaper to hand sand the rust off. It isn't deep and should come right off. Then apply that protective material on the outside.

Went to a lock shop today and they said no problem modifying the door and trunk locks to work with the ignition key. Should be ready tomorrow.

I think I'll experiment with removing the rust spots on the outside of the tank this weekend. I'll try light hand sanding, then pressure-wash the whole thing with a detergent/degreaser solution.

Default 0327 Locks Updated

No problem getting the door and trunk locks modified. I found a lock shop that easily modified them to work with the (original) ignition key. So I didn't have to replace the locks, and now 0327 is back to the CHP single-key spec.

This weekend I'll tackle the fuel tank resto.

Good to hear you got those locks back the way they came originally.
Post some photos of the tank resto, when you are able.
Regards,
Bruce
