I got a sweet church key that is key sized from him a the OCTO meet. It looks like a VW key with a church key tip instead of tumbler movers.

I posted a T34 glovebox for sale and Gabriel offered straigh cash for the lock assy. He paid quick, but it's too bad I tossed out some OG starter switches from cars I parted out. Yes, Gabriel is a great person (not to mention he shares my son's name).

You should post this in the Classifieds. I bet $10 Dr Vw Transvestite will lump Gabriel and Greg Banfill in the same "HeS nOT A staNDs up GuY" category.

I met Gabriel at the show in Phoenix about 3 years ago and have purchased keys on Ebay from him. He's the best and knows his stuff.

Gabriel is definitely a stand-up guy. He cut a key for my oval from the SG code, and then sent me the key saying, "Just pay me after you get it". How cool is that??

BTW, the key worked perfectly.

I bought an oval switch and 2 keys to go along with it and it was clean and ready to install. I recently gave him a code for another oval switch and he cut keys for me and they also worked. Really knows his stuff. Mahalos to Gabe.

Anyone buy a new doorlock or ignition with key? VWoA is making everyone remove the VW emblem from all of there aftermarket products. So, you get a cool VW KEY WITH PART OF THE V or W missing. It looks like crap!

I bought a complete set of key matching handles for my bus from him. I thought it would be the coolest thing to have one key that fits all the locks...and dammit, it is! Very stand-up guy.

Yeah, Gabe is totally the man....hardest working man in Volkswagenness. That's at least what I say when I raffle off his stuff at our BYOB show every year. That man sets up his gear Friday night and doesn't stop until closing time on Saturday! He totally has my rave and endorsement.

I also got some keys from him for my '66, after being told down here I would have to change my locks to use a different key.
They arrived in a week (fast for delivery down my way), and came with a cool church key as well! Now I will be able to still have the cool looking keys with the VW logo on them.
Great service, will use him again if I need anything.

There's nothing Gabriel can do for you. You have to remove that great wad of crap hanging off your ignition key. If you don't have a load on the key, the PO did and it completely wore out your ign switch. The only cure is to replace.
