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)
I used the straightened paper clip to ensure I cleaned out any Sugru that made its way into the top button on the key fob since this is the button that locks the car and I need to make sure it still works after the Sugru dries.
I used the strip of plastic to help me form and smooth out the Sugru. I also used it like a knife to cut the Sugru off as it helped to make a clean cut.
The majority of the smoothing was done just by hand. Keeping my fingers wet and just smoothing it out so that it felt nice in my hands.
The end result was a very smooth finish that feels very nice in the hand. Looking forward to seeing how durable the Sugru is. If it makes it until the next time I have to change the battery I will be very happy. I will be sad to have to rip off the Sugru, but it will give me another chance to order some Sugru and hopefully by then I will have learned a few more tricks on how to apply and texture the Sugru. Next time I will probably get some colored Sugru so my wife's key fob will look a little more feminine.
