Re: Trunk key hole cover on '56 Packard
Home away from home
Home away from home

See User information
I recently done this on my 56 Patrician trunk lock. Its a pain to get it, but its really not that bad once you get it.

I am not to sure how to explain it well, so bare with me.

first I separated the lock cylinder from the decorative front. I used an flat blade eye glass screw driver to insert in the keyway opening of the brass keeper on the back. I rotated the key hole cover slightly opened and used the screw driver to rotate the brass keeper. I directed the pressure of the driver on the brass keeper to keep every thing centered and continued to rotate the keeper while keeping the key cover in that slightly opened position. It took a couple attempts.
