Looks Good. How do you have it mounted? I made a plate that fits behind the license plate which I have the my key pinned to for easy removel when parked. I also have one that fits the same mount that is powered (turns) off the license plate lights.

For something a little different, I'd like to see someone do a key modeled after our humongous ignition key. Then put a sticker on the tailgate that says, "1.0L Hemi-Roid". Just a thought.

Mine is mounted via a suction cup (3"), held on with some silicon caulk (ensures the suction cup doesn't lose suction, while still being removable). It is actually on the rear window - much more stable than the tail gate plastic. I may eventually upgrade to a powered one, but I doubt it...

Have had my wind-up key on since I got the car a year ago. Good for lots of laughs and lots of attention. That's why I also have it on my avatar.
