Allen Bachelder is right on about keys and locks. Back in time I had a
Bugeye, and a friend had a Metropolitan. Both had the same combination light
switch with the ignition lock inside. One day I was sitting in the car
waiting for him and noticed that the number on the ignition lock was the
same as my Sprite. They both had the same key! Couldn't have been too many
different locks for that to happen.

Even more stupid, when I bought a Post Office Jeep there was no key for it.
It seems that the PO ordered all the Jeeps with the same lock. Steal one key
and you could get into every truck! Their next step for them was to drill
holes in the jeep and use a lock and chain to keep the doors locked.

Take the lock out of the boot and take it to a locksmith. They should be
able to make a key for less than the price of a set of locks.
