if you look back at what i originally wrote, i said for the best results, you should remove all the keys, lay out the sheet and cut out the key area with an xacto knife.. i guess i should have explained why.... when you cut the strips, not only can you feel it, but you can see it! because of the weave pattern that carbon fiber has, it just looks funny if the weave changes directions.

i figured i would throw in my 2 cents since i have actual experience with using the tape... i think you will have a really hard time applying the tape to every key (unless you are just putting the tape on the finger tip area.) it's tricky stuff to work with.
but don't get it off ebay! that store is in hong kong! and is probably Shh*t to work with... the stuff you want is high quality tape, 3M brand! otherwise, the film will just peel off and you will have nothing but a sticky mess!

Ah, too late my friend, already ordered and such! Thanks, though. And I'm not applying it to every key, just the glossy finish.

how do you plan on applying it? i think the best idea would be to remove all the keys, then use an exacto knife and very carefully cut away the key areas. also 5" might be too narrow... you should have gotten at least 8" wide.
