Keys and Knees

Knee interference, before
There was one more thing hitting my knee--the key in the ignition.  This would require a creative solution.

The first step was going to Lowe's and getting a copy of the key for $2.17.  Thank you 1994 and your lack of expensive "smart" keys.
I inserted that key into the various locks and marked the depth.

I then removed the plastic.

Drilled a hole.

Trimmed off excess material.

 And rounded it off, for a sleek, efficient key.

Here it is in the ignition.
Here's the original again:
