    Lock re tumbling - anyone got any tumblers.

    After my recent alarm woes, I was reminded that my door locks don't match the ignition or boot.

    Whilst this isn't a problem, I thought I'd have a go at re-tumbling the locks so all match and looking at the guide (http://wiki.the-corrado.net/re_tumbing_locks.html) it seems pretty straight forward (I hope it is)

    So before I attempt to tackle this, does anyone have any spare tumblers they want to sell me as I don't fancy shelling out £40 for a huge bag of them from the stealers.

    Stuart.

    Don't know how many I'll need to do the door locks. Let me know costs.

    It was mid 30's in Rome when I visited and despite melting, I found it one the best capital I've visited......I need to go back.

    Cheers fella. I wouldn't mind a new key at the same time - are these best cut from the code (that I don't have) or just by copying the key?
