Skyline Titanium Key – RI Gen1
Two years in the making, our titanium keys are released in limited quantity!
Our original vision for these keys featured this particular text style with lettering that goes completely through. Due to manufacturing difficulties, the likelihood of replenishing the stock of this first series with this style of lettering is slim… so get one while you can! Each key requires hand finishing after being cast which drives up production time as well as difficulty to achieve complete uniformity across the entire batch.

- Manufactured from titanium
- Cast from precision CNC cut molds based off our Solidworks drawings
- Design mimics the original 300zx/Z32 keys with a few noticeable differences
- Due to the materials used these are very strong
- We have personally tested our keys to fit the R32 Skyline, Z32 300zx, as well as the S13 Silvia.
- Our unconfirmed compatibility list is as follows: 1980-1984 Datsun 810, 1984-1988 200SX, 1989-1991 240sx, 1984-1989 300ZX, 1982-1986 720, 1983-1990 Pulsar NX, 1982-1986 Sentra, 1990-1991 Stanza, 1995-1998 R33 Skyline
- The actual key design (pictured) should be compatible with the ignition cylinder/door locks of other vehicles not listed.
- Each key needs to be cut on a MANUAL key cutting machine. Please seek out an experienced locksmith in your area.
- No kiosks and no automatic machines at hardware stores.
- Instruct the locksmith to cut the key slowly. Cutting this key using the same speed as a typical brass key can either damage their blade or damage your new titanium key
- After your key is cut you will need to deburr the edges before using it. The wire wheel on a typical manual key cutting machine is not enough.
- Use either a small jewelers file or rolling up a piece of sandpaper (200-320 grit) to smooth out any and all sharp edges left over from the cutting process.
- If you plan on testing the key in your car immediately, bring your file/sandpaper with you!
- If your key is being matched/cut from an extremely old and worn key, we highly recommend finding a locksmith in your area that can code cut this new key.
- This often involves them generating a code from your existing key, cutting a generic blank using the code in their machine, and then matching your new titanium key on the manual key cutting machine.
- We tested both methods and measured the differences with a digital caliper… the code cut key is a clear winner. Our original prototype did not work on an 89 Skyline but the problem ended up being the worn original key.
