I have a 80 vette that has been completely redone and I am putting the interior back in now and have come up against the security system. I do not want to reinstall it as it appears that most of it is missing, can I just bypass it some how.

this kind of info is mostly found in a factory service manual...

the security system in an 80 C3 it totally different than the security system in an 87 C4.. .

on the C4 which i am familiar with the system is called a VATS system and uses a resistor in the key...  contacts in the ignition switch... wires that go to several devices then the ECM..  and some relays to prevent you from starting the car..

its about 10 bucks worth of stuff from a radio shack to bypass the VATS system if you have a proper resistor key...  and a digital volt meter..
