    Hey all you hardcore 80 series folks! I made a key fob for the 100 series remote. I have had dozens of requests to make a shell for the 80 series as well. I have one style complete and ready for orders - the Two Button "Trapezoid" style. If you have another style remote and would want one of these types of replacement shells, post up here and let me know.

    This thread is for general discussion but more importantly right now, I'd like a tally of folks interested so I can order up the right quantity to get things rolling on this new design. All orders received by Tuesday evening will get a small discount in exchange for you waiting the production lead time of about 2 weeks. After that I'll try to stock them for immediate shipment.

    See the design in the attached pictures.

    YotaMD.com - Products - Toyota and Lexus Key Fob

    General Info: The shell replaces your original shell and reuses the internal remote, battery and battery holder. It's made out of 3D printed Nylon in an SLS printing method. This is far superior to the typical 3D printing method (FDM) used by the home 3D printers you may have seen. They print these SLS parts using a high powered laser that sinters powdered plastic in an industrial machine. The results are super fine detail in a very strong material. I have yet to have a single customer break their keyring on my 100 series fobs. If you're the first to break any of the 80 series, I'll replace your fob shell for free.

    I plan to offer this shell in BLACK only unless there's significant demand for another color. Orange and Red have been popular for the 100 series, but Black is number one thus far. Let me know what you think.

    Due to some crazy-intense life moments in the last couple of days, I haven't been able to get these on order. Bad news is those who purchased will have to wait an extra day or two because I won't be able to order parts until tomorrow.

    Good news is the discount pricing still applies until I get that order in to the printer, likely late Thursday or Friday.

    Side note: this 80 section is hopping. You guys have a ton of activity. I had to scroll through a handful of pages to find this thread already.

    Haha 2 days? I have no problem waiting 12+ weeks for a BIO bumper. I'm sure the electrical tape will hold out a bit longer.

    Thanks for the update!

    Yes this place is quite active.

    Yeah that should be fine. Please send me your zip code so I can verify costs before placing your order. Here or via pm is fine. If it's a lot more than normal I can send you an invoice to cover the exact total cost.

    Wow, huge improvement! Didn't realize so many 80's had key less entry.
