I wish I could say I had this idea myself, but I got it from an integra forum from searching far and wide on the internet after reading about all you guys and your "Rogue" Keys =D. I think I simplified the original how to, but you should read through it to get an idea of what I did before you start.

DIY: flip key fob python alarm. - Team Integra Forums - Team Integra


Nissan Flipkey/Switchblade how to for python,viper alarms or other.

Skill level: 5 (1-10)
Money: $60-75 - Or less, you should already have the alarm controller or something similar
Tools Needed: Safety Googles/Gloves/Protective Gear - Dremel with cone attachment, Hobby Knife, 800-2000 grit sand paper(if you wish to smooth out or paint smooth), small phillips. Super Glue or expoxy (pictured)
Time: Varies depending on paint, about 2 hours maybe for the modding process. Another couple hours/day for painting if you want to do it right.

CAVEATS -

1 - The transponder should fit in the back in of the back piece on the opposite side of where the antennae was stuffed in. Use from an old key or get it copied at a lock smith for way cheaper than the dealer.

2 - GO TO A REAL LOCK SMITH TO COPY THE KEY. DO NOT GO TO HOME DEPOT, ACE, LOWES UNLESS YOU TRUST THEM.




Purchase from ebay or amazon - 10$ shipped for empty shell and flipkey:


Purchase from ebay or amazon - 45$ Python/Viper/other





Process - PLEASE READ THE INTEGRA POST FIRST BEFORE ASKING QUESTIONS.

1 - Disassemble the ebay/amazon flip key being sure to see how it is put together/the spring/etc. It is very easy, just 3 screws, but be mindful of the spring. (pictured)

2 - Disassemble the python/viper/other remote - Just slide a small flat head under the notch and then gently pry up. You will only be using the Jelly Button pad, the outer bezel and the electronics. The back piece will be trashed. (pictured)

3 - Use the Dremel to cut out the inner part of the ebay/amazon flip key until it is smooth and is about the same size as the window to the python key (pictured)

4 - Press the outer part of the python/viper/other remote into the underside of the piece you just cut out (pictured). (you will have to remove the jelly button cover for this process)

******This part is the most time consuming as you have to probably keep popping the viper/python outer alarm piece into the ebay flipkey/switch key face until it matches. I just kept on using my dremel til it fit snug in there. You will then have to sand down or dremel the inside part till it is smooth and uniform so that the electronics piece can sit in it. (pictured)

5 - Once the pieces fit, glue into place, super glue, epoxy or any other permanent glue you trust yourself with on plastic.(pictured)

6 - Once dry, sand edges to smooth and paint.(pictured)

7 - Assemble, being mindful of the spring, its tricky. I used the extra sponge the ebay/amazon flip key came with to make the pieces stay fit/snug while pressed together. Screw the 3 screws in.(pictured)

8 - Test the button/Enjoy with Beer. But not driving at the same time of course. (pictured)
