Grounded... sorry I damn near started you a F/S thread without knowing it! lol... For the work involved man that looks so good... I know I remember the flip key being sold, always wanted one but could never bring myself to spend that kinda $'s on it! One day I will try your way... but I'm more of a home builder... than key builder and will probably lose a finger and wreck all my keys leaving my car stuck! lol...
Let me know if you ever decide to make a couple for people... I would happily 'donate' some $'s to you for a job like that one! Once again... good job pal!

I found a seller on ebay that had chrysler key fobs for the minivans I believe. It had the opening for a different button pattern but the groove around them was the same as my 300 keys.
Using my dremel I cut out the button opening from the flip fob up to the line, then on my keys I cut out the excess up to the line. I used a plastic adhesive to fill and bond them, then a quick sand and paint and I was golden. The key on the fob was the correct blank so all I had to do was have home depot cut it and I was in business. Ill really finish it up later but it was super clean. It was nice to take my spare key with a snapped off key ring loop and make a fully functional key again!
total cost $10.
Can you post more pics of the process and the insides of the new remote... Just found a key for 10 bucks on ebay

Such an awesome idea. I'd love to have it done. Y'all have no idea how many times my 300 key has poked a hole in my shorts and jeans pockets. Too many times to count. It's because these key fobs are so large and long. I've never has this issue with my ford or Chevrolet keys. Dang nab-bit!!
