Hi Guys, please email me (in profile) rather than posting a reply here for obvious reasons.
Given up trying to find the keys so gonna chisel the steering lock off, electrics have never been my thing and I need to move the old bus before removing the radiator etc.
Any help via email would be very appreciated.
Thanks
Andy

Just thinking a little bit...
You have the old dasboard and a petrol engine, so no glow plugs. Doesn't most of the parts of the dash come from the late bay? could you buy the parts you need from Justkampers or something, and then move the cables over.
If you buy this: https://www.justkampers.com/vw-t2-bay-window-parts/t2-bay-electrical-parts/switches-ignition-switches-keys/111-905-865-l-ignition-switch-vw-beetle-1971-on-vw-t2-bay-1974-1979-vw-T3-1979-1992.html
and this: https://www.justkampers.com/vw-t2-bay-window-parts/t2-bay-electrical-parts/switches-ignition-switches-keys/211-905-855-c-ignition-lock-barrel-vw-t2-bay-1970-1979-T3-june-1979-to-nov-1990-t4-sept-1990-to-july-2003-beetle-1970-1979.html i think you have what you need.

Plenty of vids on youtube of how to do this. eg https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UVpjtWyVc6M
I don't think the LT's wiring is any different. Should be easy enough. You may not need to damage the steering lock or ignition barrel either.
