you should take that big wad of keys off your ignition switch. the weight swinging back and forth wears out the ignition switch.

i use only the single key in the ignition with nothing else ever since i wore out the first ignition switch. :wink:

3 layers total? I used an infrared heater when is was too cold, but I did it in my underground garage, it won't bond at all if it's cold.

EDIT: I noticed the center console, what car is it from?
