Source for trunk lock

Post by Tom Wilson » Sun Dec 29, 2019 4:26 pm

I am looking for a trunk lock button. Mine got screwed up in Chroming. GTO Engineering has the whole setup for $650. Did Fiat use the same one?

Tom, is it really that far gone? I remember I had a hard time finding a locksmith in town that was willing to take my driver door and trunk buttons apart, so I could ship them off for plating. When I did find a guy that was willing to do it, I stood there and watched him take it apart and wondered why it was such a big deal for the others.

What part do you need? The surrounding casting, or the button portion of the mechanism?

I am looking for the piece on the left in this photo. After re-chroming the button is sticking in the exterior piece and sanding has not helped any. The lock itself is not a problem, but the button is.

Tom, if you can't find a replacement the surrounding piece can be bored out slightly on a milling deck. You can then re-chrome it or just leave it.

BobA loaned me the lock from his car and it works great. Also, Cornelis alerted me to a lock on Italy's ebay that I picked up. It won't be here in time for Cavallino, but it will be great when Bob want his back! Thanks guys.
