Tibbe Lock Conversion

This morning I got a lovely surprise upon walking out to my car! Some dirty scum bag had had a go at flogging the Fairmont!!! I am pissed as!! The asshole stuffed the lock barrels trying to get in, now I can't unlock it. In the process, they also broke the driver's side door handle. My mum is good friend's with a locksmith, so I'll be able to get it fixed cheap.

I have asked this question before, but I'll ask it again. Can I convert the car from standard locks/ignition to tibbe's? The door's should be piss easy, but what about the ignition? I think they provide a bit higher security. I don't want to change to lock buttons to the flush ones, I'm happy with the EA style ones, just the barrels. Any help would be great.

If I ever catch the low life that did this, there'll be hell to pay!! It has made me soooo angry!!

Tibbe locks were introduced with the 30th Anniversary model EA's.

Dead easy swap.

If you know how to change the ignition barrel, your more than half way there.

Changed my locks the day after I got the car.
