I’ve had offers of $300 and $400.    For a running, driving conquest......

I can guarantee you 100% if I had said yes, they would have said “ok, I’ll be in touch” OR “ok, I’ll let you know”
I wouldn't waste my time selling it for $300-$400 lol  Rims on that car are worth that much alone.

I took my locks to local locksmith.They matches all the internals to the OEM key. Pretty sure it was about $25.00 per lock.

Hello everyone. Yes l am working on it.l had a custum broach made for the large splines but it didnt make it through the first part.Tool pressure was so big that it stalled my spindle and  $900.00 broach was toast.
Looking into having splines cut. The only problem with cutting them is that it takes a long cycle time for each piece.This increases price drastically as machine time is roughly $90-$120 per hr plus set up time and material. Remember that there is internal/external splines on one coupler and 1 large internal on  the other.
None of this work includes machining the old coupler from the shaft and welding new one on. A very expensive part.

Yes l am still at it but not there yet till l can afford to have splines done on the cheap/cheaper so we can all afford them.
I will keep you updated as l go.
Thank you
