    Stupid question; but how do you get the trunk key hole bit off the latch to take the latch out? I did a search but couldn't find anything.

    Look inside the lid behind the latch - there's a spring clip you'll slide up to release the cylinder ... that's on a '51-'52. The '49 & '50 use different setups, but you'll figure it out as soon as you study it.
