Started Rollin' Wit Jesus!!!

So, this is a silly mod but it was fun and I love it. I am a fan of Kevin Smith movies (Clerks, Mallrats, Dogma, etc...). So I picked up a little something when I was in Red Bank, NJ at his comic store, The Secret Stash. I wanted to mount it in my car but as I have terrible OCD I couldn't glue it or Velcro it to anything on the dash so I had a think session *see also: smoke session* and I came up with something I thought was rather clever. I decided to mount it rearward on the back dash. As this is covered in carpet it doesn't lend itself to easy mounting options plus my little trinket is a bit top heavy. I decided to use the spot for the key to release the folding rear seats. I looked into getting a key cut from Honda as it is keyed specifically to each car. F that S in the A! Too expensive. So I decided to gut the tumblers from the lock cylinder and create a blank post with a platform top to insert in there to be able to use the latch release. So this is what I came up with.







Fans of the movie Dogma will recognize this immediately. This is the item I wanted to mount.


&mpt=[CACHEBUSTER]">





First step, Removing the lock latch mechanism. Pop the Black plastic cover of the lock out from inside the trunk and take the clips off the bars connected to the latches and lift them out of their cradles. Manipulate the bar to remove from the lock. The way the bars are attached to the lock in this photo is backwards. The longer left side bar attaches to the white top clip. From the inside of the car, remove the 2 phillips head screws and manuever the lock out of its location. Be careful not to drop the screws or your gonna be fishing with a magnetic rod.&mpt=[CACHEBUSTER]">
&mpt=[CACHEBUSTER]">





Next step is to gut the tumblers from the lock cylinder. This is quite easy to do. First remove the clip from the bottom side to slide the plastic tabs off and remove the retainer spring. Pay attention to the orientation of the tabs and the ears of the lock to make reassembly easier.



&mpt=[CACHEBUSTER]">





Pry the cap off the top of the lock with a thin but sturdy flat blade. Remove the top plate and hinged spring used to keep debris out of the key hole. If you want to reuse that top plate you can but be careful as the rod is very small and falls out easily when removing it. Set all the parts you have removed aside for reassembly later. Take your key and insert it into the lock. Grip the top of the lock and pull the cylinder from the housing. If you don't have the key for some reason you can use a small flat blade on the side of the housing to push in the latch and then pull the cylinder out. The tumblers and springs should all come out easy peasy. You won't need any of them so you can pitch them all in the garbage. Reassembly is the reverse of disassembly.



&mpt=[CACHEBUSTER]">









On to the blank! If you have something lying around that will work, use it! I didn't so I took a piece of 1/4" plate steel and cut it to the dimensions I wanted. Then I took a 1" flat washer and welded it to the post I just cut.



&mpt=[CACHEBUSTER]">



Then to clean it up a bit I took it to the grinder and smoothed it out.



&mpt=[CACHEBUSTER]">

Test fit perfectly!



&mpt=[CACHEBUSTER]">
&mpt=[CACHEBUSTER]">



Then I took some loctite and placed the blank in a vice and glued my homie jesus onto it.



&mpt=[CACHEBUSTER]">
&mpt=[CACHEBUSTER]">
&mpt=[CACHEBUSTER]">








Next step, Installation. Pretty straight forward. The lock still functions as it did before but now I just ask Jesus to drop my rear seats for me!

Thanks lol. I like to have him facing the back so the car I just dusted gets to know that even though they are slower than an accord, Jesus still loves them!

When I saw the mod you did I was like, why the Fu*k?

...but then I "carefully" read your first paragraph and then I was like: oh, I see.
