    Check out my key!

    My car is still a pile of parts to hopefully be a 430 someday. In the meantime, I at least finished the key. I made it from epoxy resin and black casting plastic. Since I am using the Sebring column on my build. There is plenty of room for this big key.

    What do you all think?

    Looks great MacGyver. Where did you get the mini-hood emblem? And I can completely relate to the relationship you have with you car btw.

    For those of you who would like a tutorial of how I made my key. This is how it was done.

    I started out with having my original key copied with a plastic cover. These types of keys have a smaller head after you remove the plastic and are easier to mold new plastic around it.

    I cut out a piece of ABS plastic and cut it the shape of what I wanted for a key head. I then copied it in black resin plastic and using my dremel tool, I cut in the area of where the F logo will be. From there I made a another mold of that piece as well.

    For the center area I used a piece of plastic that I shaped and made a third mold.
