Door Lock Mechanisms - Shaving Key holes

I'm interested in removing the key holes below my door handles but am not familiar with products out there. I'm welding shut holes now and would like to know how this all works before I seal up this hole.

What could I use to do this and still work with my existing door handles?
Any help would be appreciated.

This for the doors on a 65 Comet...

thanks

Let me get this straight, you want to remove the door lock cylinders but leave the handles? WHY?

How will you lock the doors?

Hmm, That's usually an all or none process, most people dont leave anything behind. But if you were to look at how the mechanisms work from behind the door, you would see how simple it is. Removing the lock wont affect how the door latch works, you just wont have a lockable door.

You could of course simply put a solenoid or motor to lock the door via remote later. But honestly, It is like chopping the top a half inch, a lot of work for very little reward.

LOL, yeah, I thought about that after I posted it. How about one of the most perfect customs of all time, Jimmy Vaughns Riv with only an inch and a half chop, stunning.

locks

Make sure the internal linkage can't lock or get blocked. Like a window jars outof track. Might unlatch the rear seat-just in case.m
