Default Spare Trunk Lid for Mounting a Wing

I know there are lots of threads where people have talked about buying a spare trunk lid that a wing can be mounted to and swapped on and off, which is what I want to do. However, I haven't found any that talk about what's necessary in order to have a working lock.

If I were to purchase a salvage trunk lid with the latch mechanism and lock included, is it just a matter of getting a new Honda key cut to match the VIN number on the trunk lid itself?

I'd like to have a working lock in case there are any electrical/wiring issues, so that I can still open the trunk.

Just pull the lock, take it with your key to a lock shop and they will match them. I did exactly this a month ago, no need to have multiple keys. 2 bolts hold the cylinder in and the lock rod and you’re done.

That's good news. Thanks for the info.

your key cylinder that contains the locking mechanism can be swapped over to the new trunk very easily as well

True, but I figure the less bolts and things I have to remove every time I have to swap trunk lids, the less of a chance I have at screwing something up/damaging something.

I just moved the lock from my original trunk to the spare trunk. It is very easy. Also you may not need if you don't mind just using the key fob or button in car to unlock the trunk.

If you have the key for the lock your local Honda dealer should be able to re key it for you to match your car.
