A friend gave me the handle/cable portion of a 65/66 remote trunk latch. I found the installation instructions on Dave's 66 Tech Site (http://www.aloha.net/~djhamma/).

1) The lock extension needs to be changed to a part number 2543283. How is this part different from the stock extension? Is it available?
2) A bracket assembly (2546512) holds the cable at a clamp (6446148) at the trunk latch. Are these parts available?
3) A number of clips are used to hold the cable in place, but not identified with a part number. These are held in place with a #8 screw. Anyone know what to use here?

Thanks for the help.

The only question I can answer is the first one. The difference between the two is that the remote lock extension has a different groove cut in the end to allow it to rotate without moving the key. The stock extension can be modified using a dremel tool. If you're interested in doing this, let me know and I'll email you a diagram of how to cut it.
