Maybe get a complete flip key of eBay for some $30-50, have the blade cut at a locksmith place and then take to Ford to code it. This way it should not cost you really much.

Thank you, yes I have a blank key and fob so looks like the way to go for the moment. Last look I did (a couple of months ago) was A$100 - A$150 just for the programming, A$55 for the key cutting. Not really much in the scheme of things these days I suppose, just hard to want to pay that amount for the programming (considering what's involved)... But if I want a usable spare key and fob then that's the price, take it or leave it, I guess.

Here in WA Perth area you can cut the blade as low as $29.50.
Not really sure how much Ford will charge for programming , but check from dealer to dealer if you have a few nearby.
Good luck.

Love Perth. Used to live there about 20 years ago. ;)

SO, I had a friend of a mate come and have a look at my car. Seems I have a Frankenstein FG - part Mk1, part Mk2. The 2nd hand dealer sold it to me as a upgraded "to Mk2" but it has Mk1 body (squarish, thin front grill) and ICC is not touch control (and monochrome). USB is under ICC and not in the center storage bin...

Given the above, he's pretty sure the car is more an Mk1 than an Mk2, I need to track down manufacturing date of Ford changing to Mk2... So I'm guessing there's a good chance I can use FORScan to do the PATS programming?
