Fixing broken key fob with Sugru

I have a 2003 Honda with two key fobs.  Both of the key fobs broke this past year so I did what I normally do and use Gorilla tape to keep the two halves together.  Recently, I learned about Sugru so I thought I would give it a try.

First I took off the Gorilla tape and all the sticky residue left behind.  I got out the supplies I thought I would need.

1. Sugru (black)
2. 220 grit sandpaper
3. Pape rclip
4. Piece of plastic.
5. Small cup of water (not shown)

Once I had my supplies all laid out, I took the 220 grit sandpaper and scuffed up the area where I was going to place the Sugru.  Not only did this help ensure the tape residue was gone but it gives the Sugru a rougher surface to stick to.

Step 2:

I start out by just getting the Sugru on to the key fob covering the top, sides and then across the back.  At this stage it is very rough and needs to be smoothed out to make it fit comfortably in your hand when handling the key.
