He' couldn't make it move either, so it will need to be drilled/cut out.
After all the effort you went through Bryce, I didn't think a mechanic was going to succeed :(

Car is back!
Mechanic had to drop the steering box in the end to get enough clearance to remove the ignition lock.
The used lock supplied by styria is now in the car.

I am going to put the instrument cluster and some of the other trim back in myself.

Great news that it's back on the road!
By the way, that 280SE is still registered till 27Sep 2022
Is it open? I can see the windows are down.

Gave the 280SE its first oil change under my care now its on the road and ready for use. Oil was fairly dirty so I am glad i did. Since I don't know the last one done, I'll do another one in 1,000km to ensure everything is clean and set a baseline.
