mustang doors&locks

Well the mustang I bought didn't have any door keys&my drivers door is kinda banged up anyway so I thought Id just buy two doors from someone instead of getting a locksmith to make keys.Well I was wondering what doors would work&if I bought power doors how would that work?I mean how to hook em up?

I'd have a key made to fit the door.
If the door is in bad shape just get 1 door and replace it.

The locksmith wants allmost 300 to come out&make a key&if I do that&replace one door then Ill have to use two keys to get in the car,it seems cheaper to buy the doors with keys.

Remove the lock and bring it to the locksmith, what are you thinking? What year Mustang is this? Don't you want a key that matches the ignition? For goodness sakes, replacing doors because of a lost key or messed up lock cylinder is just plain nuts!

Buy a new cylinder for the door with the bad lock. Bring that cylinder along with the key that works in the other door to a locksmith, it will NOT cost you $300 not unless you have a 2008 or something with a "smart key" or something like that.

Keying a new lock cylinder around here in the SF bay are where prices are REAL high is only about $50.

probably won't find a door with keys ither.. most of the time, the keys go with the steering column on a car that's getting parted.. re-key is the only logical option. or buy a pair of new lock cylinders from Ford with keys
