Shell key replacement on 2003 Lexus SC430

I cracked the case on my key holder. I want to purchase another shell for the key. Will it be easy to transfer the chip from the old one to the new one then get the key cut? Do I need to get the key cut first before swapping the other one? What is the do it yourself way?

the plastic case with a new metal key cut for your car is $100 at the Lexus dealer. you will simply transfer the remote "guts" from the old key to the new key. this is the best deal on the planet!
