Switchblade Key correct?
There's a very very very small chance they could re-case it for you.
Problem is with that, it depends on who works in the parts department where you are, and if they know how. But I gaurantee they have extras laying around, from customers who order the wrong key, the department messed up the order etc.
They might charge you for the case but it wouldn't be $200+
The only issue is, is fitment. The changed the style of the chip on the inside around 2000, so the chips from the older keys will seem like they fit but once you put the batteries in and try to put the cover on you'll run into fitment issues.
it really depends on who you're working with, I've reskinned about 10 of them with no real issues. It takes practice.
