        Excellent idea! I struggled with the same thing when I did my lock and key swap.

        How did you get around the different in the wiring harness?

        Great job though!

          Did you leave the original lock in place, this way someone tries to jimmy it instead of the real lock?
          what kind of neighborhood do you live in?

              Ok, so you did what I did then... just from the photos it looks like it was still just a three wire connector... maybe there was a connector off camera, I missed.

                that was before i cut the connector off and spliced, i did the lock first to make sure the wires would not be in the way.

                  I dont know why, but it wont let me upload them.
                  Here's a link to my Facebook album, you can find the pics in there.

                  The tail is off a 03 & it's the stock 01 lock cable. Obviously, it's a custom tail, but the mounts & lock ring stayed untouched. All I did was cut some of the stock away to fit the undertail in
