Nice one! (Now I'm even more tempted to fit the remaining example I have "in stock", sans adjustments! Very Happy

Car looks good in the photo by the way. Thumbs up

Best place for getting spare keys cut?


These are the three keys I got with my car, so with only one of each, would be keen to get spares cut. Any recommendations appreciated, as I was going to initially try local locksmiths/key cutters etc. The only marking/numbers on each, are as per the photo, so not sure if that's enough info for getting someone online to do same?
Cheers for any advice etc.

Jim

I haven't needed to get a key cut, but I suspect that an ordinary high-street cutter may not have the right blanks. But I see that Corvette Kingdom keeps blanks and then a friendly cutter should be able to make a key from yours (when I was in the trade I could cut any key from the original with the right blank).
But, I don't think the Gas key is not a standard Corvette item, and that may be more tricky!

Re: Help with newly acquired 72 350 Auto


Cheers Stephen. When I initially typed keys into CK's search, it just came up with lock & key sets, but with " blank key" there are the two blank options I need for the car itself.
Yes, petrol tank cap key may be a bit more of a challenge, but maybe not, will see!
Thanks again.

Re: Help with newly acquired 72 350 Auto


If you can find some old long established place they may have a pile of old key blanks for the gas cap. We used to keep two huge wire rings of old blanks "under the counter" and it was surprising how many times we could match up an odd key brought in.

Jim, I only got 1 key with my '71 and I took it into Timpsons in Tesco (there are loads of them all over the place) the guy looked at it, said he would order the blank and I should return in 3 days. I went back and he cut the key, 4.95 all in, job done!

Cheers Nick. Yeh, will try a few local key cutters and see what they can offer first. I've also sent an email to an online company that have GM blanks and will wait and see what they come back with.
Would just like to have a spare set, given that Jimmy the Jinx hasn't appeared this year....yet!! Rolling Eyes

Have a look on EBay.com there's usually lots of genuine blanks on there all you need to do is match up to your originals B51-D for the door key, I might be able to help with that one as I had to get some extras when I needed one but my ignition key is a J.
