Re: Poor man's WK mod thread

Hey guys my key fob came in the mail and I had it cut at a locksmith and when I turn the key the battery and AC and everything comes on but the car doesn't start. So the locksmith said my original key has a transmitter in it and it would cost $100 to program the new key fob. Did any of you come across this issue?

Re: Poor man's WK mod thread

If you bought the switch blade key fob just take the transmitter out of your old key fob and put it in the new one. No programming required. The switch blade key fob does not come with a transmitter pre-installed. That's also why it is only $20.

If you bought a standard key fob with a transmitter already installed AND you only have one key programmed then yes, you will have to go to the dealer for programming. Costs about $50. There is no workaround for this.

If you already have two keys programmed then you can program a third key on your own. No dealership activation required. You can find the instructions on this forum if you do a search.

Re: Poor man's WK mod thread

I ordered all the paint to do my grille and engine cover this weekend, but now think it might be too cold to do that... It will be about 40deg here in Chicago on Sunday.

Any advice or experience with this?

I've painted stuff a lot in colder weather this year. Side mirrors, wheels, grille insert, random exterior parts. What I would suggest is set up 2 work stations. 1 outside and 1 inside to let the parts dry. Leave all your paint inside to stay warm and make sure you shake it well before spraying. As long as you leave yourself enough space on the backside to lift the part up and move it you should be fine. Just make sure you give it a bit of extra drying time when bringing it back inside. Humidity will be your biggest concern when its cold out. Paint has a tendency to gum up or not have a smooth finish, leaving a crackle finish if done improperly in colder temps.

+1 rep. That's good advise.

I have painted and Plasti-dipped in 30-40 degree weather here in Boston with no problems, using this same method.

So basically painting outside due to fumes, but drying inside to prevent cracking...Makes sense. I have the blue metallic (dont know the factory name) with chrome trim. The plan in to color match the grille with paint from automotivetouchup and gloss the mesh to try and match the chrome trim. Any other suggestions?

Obviously if you have a garage or well ventilated place indoors that is the way to go. I don't so I do everything outside and then bring it inside to dry.

Just remember to do these steps and you will be golden. Sand, Clean, Adhesion Promoter, Primer, Paint, Clear.

Make sure you clean the parts VERY well before painting them. Especially that engine cover! And if you can since its cold out, sand the primer down a bit with some 2,000-2,500 grit sand paper. And blow it off with compressed air when finished. I wouldn't use any cleaners or water to clean it. Maybe a damp tack rag but thats all. By sanding the primer it'll make the base coat stick a bit better and give it a smoother look for the end result. The can will say you can sand the base coat, but I avoid that step, I've had mixed results wet sanding it that way. Lay on your clear lightly for the first couple coats, then a bit heavier on the last 2 coats. Gives it a wetter look, just make sure to keep it moving to prevent runs. I did this on my side mirrors and it came out great. It's very hard to over spray using the automotive touchup cans. The spray nozzle's they use are AMAZING! The paint always comes out in thin even coats. I always save the nozzles and use them on my other painting projects. They're great to use with plasti dip cans
