Origional L code OG stamped 67 key

Post by type21f »

I am seeking a "no longer wanted" origional stamped L code key to recommission a few 67 parts and attemp to rediffer an ignition switch.
Does anyone have one left over from swapping theirs around?
This is the OG key style which should be stamped that I am seeking.

This is the reseller Borkey brand one which may well not be stamped.

I hope to be able to find an OG key!

Volkswagen Emporium have them for £10:

They'll cut it to code for you too for an extra £10 (I've just had a T code one done by them).

Sadly I have no confidence that the codes on any of the items are correct so I am seeking to rediffer the pieces to a known stamped OG key. Then I will get a pair of keys cut.
I have made that mistake before, getting a T code key cut only to find that the handles had already been vsndalised by a PO with a dremel....Grrrr

So looking for an origional L code key not a blank, please?

Several may have altered a lock barrell to match others and have an unwanted L key?

Maybe try this guy... https://www.thesamba.com/vw/forum/profi ... le&u=94339

He lists a number of keys. Couldn't see 'L', but maybe try emailing him.

So I will try him but I really just want a key with the pierced VW roundel.. I have two handles with different L codes. They are stripped down and cleaned and I aimed to register to a single code. My aim was to get a roundel key and recode both to match the key. Yes I can buy a modern blank.
Anyone have an odd L code key for sale?

Cheers Miles, yes Gabriel does have blanks and can cut, but I was seeking one that is in UK.
I had a reply from the guy above Steelers he has L code and can cut. I have now located the handles and more importantly the key numbers on each of the operating fingers.
No one seems to have an odd key about..Image
