Why don't you take out the lock sets and have a locksmith re-key them all to one key? Cheaper, no shipping and shouldn't be that expensive if you take it to the locksmith...

Charles’ (Patcon’s) suggestion is a good one.  I’m planning to follow that advice soon and rekey my 280Z’s locks.

From the OP post I don't know what year car we're talking about, but...

My '71 is also a two key affair. The ignition key is toothed on both edges, but the door / hatch key is only toothed on one edge. the cut lines down the key sides appear to be very different. I can't see how the locks could be made to work with a single key for the whole car by a locksmith. My '73 was keyed to a single key of the type with the teeth on both edges. Not sure when Datsun changed to the single key for the whole car, but it was sometime between 12/70 when my '71 was built and sometime in the first half of '73.

My 4/71 build has the double edge cut key that works on all locks as well as the ignition.  One key does it all.
