    Someone did do a how-to but that vanished.
    I was lucky enough to read it and it looks like a bit of work ect.
    Dremels a must lol.
    Far as i remmber you basically take the flip apart and the standard g swap the chips over (Which have to be cut down to fit and then the same with the actually metal key, although the plastic casing of the flip key has to be trimmed .

    Dont quote me on this though

    don't know if anyone will be able to find it i have been looking for ages, when i was part of the vvoc someone found another how2 for solid to flip key which was easier to follow however some of the text was in german but the pictures were easier to follow and understand, i don't think there was as much soldering either in the german one.
