    delocking boot, hidden fail safe help

    I have recently delocked the drivers side door while colour coding the handles.

    looks good

    i was hoping to delock the boot, but very aware its a pain in the @ss to get in if battery dies.

    Is it possible to hide a keylock that will unlock the door.
    any ideas would be great. possibly behind the license plate or something similar.

    many thanks in advance

    could always cut a whole behind the no plte and put a key lock there (from the door or boot) and use that as even if some one sees it they still need your key.

    get 2 pieces of 8AWG amp cable and connect one piece to the + and one to the - terminals of your battery, make sure the other ends are very well insulated though! and zip tie them up behind the front bumper, that way if your battery fails, you can connect anouther 12v batter just to pop the locks

    make sure you know the polarity though as you dont want to mix it up!
