    Question casting rubber and plastic to make car parts!

    I have a couple of key fobs for my car by a manufacturer which nolonger exists.
    The electronic guts of these fobs are fine but the casings are showing their age
    and heavy use.
    There are no after market replacement fobs available, and the electronic guts
    will not fit in an alternative casing.

    So an idea of casting replacement casings and rubber buttons popped into the
    old brain. Also as I had made one of the dash vents into a gauge pod, I thought
    that this too could be redone a little more stronger.

    Has anyone done anything like this before?
    If you have, please let me know.
    I'm diabetic,I'm disabled BUT I'm not dead yet!!!

    My little collection of rockwell remotes, If I see one in a
    scrapyard I grab it!



    What it should look like. (the third button which is at the
    bottom is not used)



    The only thing I could think of to put a loop to but it on
    the key ring. An old key with the end bent round then
    super glued to the back of the case for one.



    With this one you can see the button rubber pad are only
    just holding together.



    And then there is the on from a bag a full remote (in bad
    condition) dismantled



    As you can see why I would need to modify a case to blank
    off the bottom button and have replaceable buttons for the
    lock and unlock.
