Changing your lock to fit your key

Have you ever been frustrated at having multiple keys for the locks on your Volkswagen?

Now with this short video, you can remove the lock and barrel from your vehicle and change the lock to fit your ignition key so that you end up with a single key operating the entire vehicle.

And best of all, you use the existing parts meaning that you should be able to do this for free.

Have you ever wondered about the link between voltage and percentage charge? A percentage charge is just using the voltage to show how “full” is the battery.

Don’t let your voltage drop too low, and if the battery is not a real deep cycle leisure battery, keep it green.

Elements such as the door handles or indicators shine Chromefarben, as are the rims in chrome and white and give the modern vehicle a certain vintage feeling. The design continues with the furniture forms: here, curved edges and lines that are entirely in the vintage look dominate.
