Colored BRZ Limited Key Fob

I stumbled upon a post (http://www.ft86club.com/forums/showp...&postcount=152) made by BugeyedWagon. He colored his key with a silver metallic and blue Sharpie. I went to several office supply stores to find these Sharpies. Office Depot has them. The local OfficeMax did not. Anyways, here are the results.

materials needed:


WD-40 work wonders removing any mistakes. I plan to mask the emblems and spray some clear.

Will definitely need to use some kind of sealant to protect the work, but looks tops!

LOL! Great job. I agree some sort of clear coat would/should make it last....of course you can always just color it again.

Great job with this little project! Like many people here would say...Small details like this makes a HUGE difference! They do look very cheap with no colour (except for the red panic button). Wish they had some sort of metal finish like the Infiniti fob keys...smooth to the touch! Anyways, I was thinking about going this route, but decided to order a case for it instead. It'll be in my pocket most of the time anyways, so no one will ever have to see it.
