FS: Key Fob replicas

Please provide your screen name and shipping info on your payment!

Please do not send funds as "Gift" anymore. PayPal is hassling me about it.


OK here's the deal. If you haven't read the other thread, here is a quick recap.

Member RayN identified the manufacturer of the original Galant VR4 keyfobs as MedalCraft. Darksyne and Struc contacted MedalCraft and got the ball rolling on this. Thanks to turbowop and Adorsey who agreed to loan me their '91 and '92 original key fobs, we can have MedalCraft make new dies (the originals were destroyed at some point). The replicas will be cast in brass, like the originals, and MedalCraft is offering engraving services.

These are going to be $22 shipped each, or $40 shipped for a pair. Engraved or blank, same price. If you want the engraving done by MedalCraft, you will have to paypal me up front before I place the order. If you want a blank one and to get your own engraving done, no pre-payment is necessary. I will order enough so that I should have blanks for sale. If necessary I can have another run of these made, since we will own the dies. A donation will be made to the site for operating costs and hookers/blow for Hertx.

I will keep everything updated at this Google spreadsheet: Click here for current order information. Note there are two sets of columns for '91 fobs and two sets of columns for '92 fobs. This is because some members wanted a key fob for #xxx/2000 as well as #yyy/2000.

Again, if you would like your fob to be engraved, I will need payment first. By sending payment you confirm that the information in my spreadsheet regarding your badge # is correct! If I transposed numbers, or otherwise screwed up, please tell me before/with your payment!!! If you don't pay by the time I place our order, I will still order the same quantity but yours will be blank. That way if you back out, I can still sell them. I will place our order once I have the original key fobs in my hands and send them off to MedalCraft. It should be a 4 week turnaround time for these to be made once MedalCraft has the originals.

Paypal can be sent to [email protected] Prices are based on $22 each or $40 for a pair:

1=$22.00
2=$40.00
3=$62.00
4=$80.00
5=$102.00
6=$120.00
7=$142.00
8=$160.00

Quoting marvinmadman:

Engraving will be your car number, just like the original badges were. xxx/1000 or xxx/2000

Quoting Can2:

That would be fine.

Quoting brunoboy:

A week from today is cut off?




Approximately. I don't have the original fobs in my hands yet, so I can't even mail them off to MC yet. It probably will not be until the next week that they have them and I place the big order. So you probably have more time. And in the worst case, your order will be converted to blanks and you can get the engraving done anywhere.

Quoting BoostedAWD91:

will the fobs their gonna make be exactly as the factory style with the raised lettering or like the ones someone else made here with the engraved lettering




The replica fobs will be cast in brass, as the originals were. They will be just as the factory style with the raised lettering. It will not be like the machined versions that someone made a while back.

Not too late.

Just got an update from MC. The die engraver looked at the key fobs. "He isn’t concerned with reproducing the dies, you don’t have to worry about the nicks showing up in the new die – they will be clean. We will have to duplicate the design in art and we will cut new dies from there. My next step will be to confirm that we still have the trim tool shape from that long ago."

I should have a further update tomorrow.

Waiting with baited breath

As I think about it now, all the fuss I created in the very beginning about proper font was kinda stupid. I don't know what they looked like anyway because I never had my fob to know.

I just want it to be close to the dash plague and be the right letter size to fit the face of the fob.

Keep up the good work Steve.

Yes they will be engraved if you'd like to pay up-front. Otherwise I will have some blank ones to sell. You can still order, they are going to set up and make me a sample.

They will keep the dies, so I can have more made in the future. There will be setup costs each time so I'm not going to have them make one at a time or anything but if you're ok with blanks I will try to keep some on-hand.

I figure at some point in the future there will (hopefully) be another run. I'm in this for the long run, I'm keeping my gvr4. Even if I did just pick up a blank at some later date, having one engraved with the correct font will be extremely helpful in getting it engraved.
I just appreciate the time taken to make all this happen and think its pretty awesome. I'm glad 488 will have the appropriate keys. I intend to order a fresh OEM key to go with it. She will have her own keychain rather than sharing with all my other junk.

IIRC the OEM key is NLA. Someone can confirm that I'm right/wrong but after that I don't want to turn the Classifieds into discussion.

OK, I have placed and paid for an order for a sample key fob, which involves creating the die and setting up for a sample run. Hopefully everything will be good, otherwise I'll be out a bunch of money for this sample. The sample should be shipped by 11/1. Of course I hope sooner, but that's what the invoice says. Will keep you guys updated. Sample was paid out of my pocket, your funds are still held in PP in case everything falls apart I can refund in the worst case.

Re: FS: Key Fob replicas

I agree that it looks really good, but you can absolutely tell it is not from the original mold.

Put this image side by side on the screen with the new ones, and you can see the "Galant VR4" is not raised as much, and the "4" is different. I think I actually like the new "4" better anyway.
The bevel on the center "engraving" section isn't as large.
The bottom right of the "G" is squared off on the original, and rounded on the replica.
The backround "texture" also is different, unless that is just from wear. Doesn't seem like it, though.

I think that is fine, though - I think they look great! It will also help the originals to retain their value if we can identify the replicas. Order 'em up!

They still have the originals actually, so I can't compare the depth of the lettering, but I think they are pretty similar. Its hard to tell the depth by looking at a "straight-on" photo. But in any case, I think they look great. I have asked for a picture of the engraving font so I can confirm it will be a close match, and I'll go ahead and place our order!

Re: FS: Key Fob replicas

I am a little surprised by the subtle differences. I'd have thought the easiest way to make the replica would be with some kind of imaging system converted into a CAD file... or something like that. The fact that the font is slightly off suggests that the replica was designed by hand using pre-existing fonts which were chosen to "best match" the original. I guess they know their business but that just seems like the hard way to me.

There is an easy way to tell the original from the replica. The original has a crappy bent piece of metal excuse for a clip that holds the badge to the main ring. Looks like the replica has a proper ring so it won't fall off like the original. Almost lost my original a few times because of it.

Re: FS: Key Fob replicas

Looks like the main difference between them as far as appearance goes is the old one has been beating around in a pocket full of change for 18 years and the Replicas are off the shelf new. Let's revisit this thread in 15 years and put an old and new side by side and see what we got. Of course that means someone needs to take an original beat up fob and keep it in 18 year old beat up pristine condition until that time comes so probably not gonna happen.

Re: FS: Key Fob replicas

Yep, they just wrote back and since a die was created already, I would have to have another die created from scratch to incorporate any changes. I appreciate everyone's input, and I resisted my initial feeling which was "too bad, its good enough for me" because that really isn't fair. But since any changes will require starting over, I'm going to proceed with the design as-is.

I did email them because the hole punched in the sample fob was a bit off-center, and that has been addressed. I have also received a picture of the font they plan on using, and I have expressed a concern that it seems to be more of a 'solid' font whereas the originals have a double line look. I will update with their response to that inquiry.

Unfortunately there isn't a chance to "update" the die. To make changes would require art changes and a new die to be created, to the tune of another $250.

To me, the point of getting the sample made was to ensure that the overall "quality" or "feel" of the piece was satisfactory to me. The sample came out looking just like the art rendering, and no one criticized the "G", "VR", and "4" when I posted up the art rendering. I was more concerned with the end product being of good overall quality, not cheap feeling, not the wrong color, etc.

I think the replica fobs in this thread look better than the previous attempts and I agree that it's probably better that they don't EXACTLY match the originals so folks can distinguish between these and the original.

Yes they said the order should be complete by the end of November.

I'm trying to work out the engraving font still. They have a triple Roman font, which looks very close to the originals but when it is engraved small, the lines seem to run together and it just looks like a solid font. I asked them to bump up the size a bit, from 1.0pt to 1.1pt font like the originals seem to be. I'm not quite sure if that addressed the issue, I requested some better pics. They did show me an engraving at 1.2pt font and you can clearly make out the separate lines in the letters, but it is definitely bigger than the stock engravings then.

My personal opinion is that the engraving on the originals looks pretty poor. Very light.

If you could match the font, but have something that was a bit more deep or thicker, that would be great, IMO.

Then again, I could probably ask for blanks and do it myself then.

I'd rather not have to bother with trying to get it engraved myself, though.

"Well you'd better cut down a little then!"

Actually I did not send the document to them in that format, I simplified it down and sorted by the "Engraving" field. So the first ones on the list are actually the blanks.

Still need to label envelopes, which means looking up the address for each person in PayPal, drop these in, and get postage put on them. I should have a half day on Weds, so assuming the PO is open their normal hours, I can go straight there from work Weds afternoon. One person ended up getting 4 even though they only paid for 2. Looks like MC mixed up that one.

I added a "Packaged" column to the spreadsheet. If you're marked with a "Yes" then your fobs are somewhere in the picture above. I will get these out to you guys ASAP!

Re: FS: Key Fob replicas

I'm glad these are rolling in to you guys. Yeah the packaging was a bit overboard. First I had to go through the box of fobs and group up the individual orders, then I wrapped them together to make it easy for me. Then it was easiest to just put the wrapped up package into an envelope. But then I was afraid they would slide around and tear through the envelopes, but I had already addressed them all, so I taped them to the inside of the envelopes.

I would like to complain about these key fobs. There was far too much tape used in packaging them and it prevented me from ripping into the envelope as quickly as I would have liked to to see my shiny fobs. Took a whole minute to remove the fobs from the envelope, which delayed my gratification by at least 30 seconds.

Glad it got to you. Another one must have got snagged like that as well, because the PO "repackaged" and mailed me the top left corner of an envelope. Basically just the return address piece. There was no part of the mailing address attached so I don't know whose it was. I'm hoping it still gets to them.

Re: FS: Key Fob replicas

Mine is still OK and I have it on my keychain, but it does seem shallow now that you mention it. I feel like some of them were deeper, unless it was just my imagination. If the colors wears out from the etching you could probably rub pencil lead in there and it will show up again, I'd think? I know it worked with Curtis' "VR-4" engraved gauge panels.

Re: FS: Key Fob replicas

I bought 2 and one of the fob's definitely are engraved more shallow than the other. No biggy to me, my buddy engrave's at a jeweler, so should be an easy fix for him. I love them still, but can definitely see it getting worse with wear.

Re: FS: Key Fob replicas

Going forward these are going to be blanks-only. It is a huge hassle for me to sort out the right # fobs to the right person, and then have this concern about the depth of the engraving. This is not to dismiss anyone's concerns about the engraving, I'm not really sure what to say about that. Just going to make things easier for myself.

Steve, not a big deal to me. I've still got faith that they will show up. Just got the mail and no FOB, but I've still got a few days before I'll really start to worry about it. If they don't come, blank fobs would be more than acceptable to me, I know a few engravers that could do it for me. I'll keep you updated.

I'm glad to see that Medalcraft came through for you Steve, glad they could get them made up.

Sorry to hear that the engraving wasn't quite exact, I'm pretty sure we used a Triple Line Roman on the dash plaques & Double Line on the fobs.

I'm happy that I was able to provide some key info for this project.
