    I usually take my shoes off, fully recline the seat, and lay upside down when working under a dash. A pillow helps.

    Re: Key fob transmitters

    Here ya go,
    finished & fully functional-




    Not bad - I'm happy with it : ) It's not crazy bulky to carry in your pocket, and you can't even see it in the ignition while driving (at least I can't anyway)
    I've only been using it for a couple days but so far there's been zero issues or problems. Fun little project for about 20 bucks & time spent.

    I had cut the rough draft key first using needle files to match it to my ignition key, and it turned out great - worked perfectly.
    Then I screwed up the correct valve vats blank when cutting it into a keyblade, of course. Thought I was going to end up bypassing vats after all,
    but I just put the resistor pellet from the key I messed up into the one I had already cut - no problemo

    I wanted the button layout piece flush with the case but wasn't sure if I'd be able to pull that off and have it look alright.
    I wish I would've cut it a little longer to cover up the empty button at the bottom too. Havn't figured out what to do with that yet-

    And I suppose the key could be a bit shorter-
    I never thought about it but I use the ear/tab things to turn the cylinder also, not the key. I still can, but it's a little different motion.

    And there's totally enough room in there for the door key, and have it able to slide in and out from the bottom, once I figure out the best way to do it

    That actually looks pretty good considering the two totally different designs and plastics.
