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.

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!

oh well...

So today at work I went to my real estate office to put in a cabinet for their bathroom.And today and saturday we have a electronic recycle program.So my real estate agent wanted to get rid of some old computer parts.The only thing I found worth keeping was this keyboard and this trackball.He also has alot of other computer parts that he told me I can go see what I want. biggrin.gif

Focus 2001 which look like some white alps(I think).A little dirty but once cleaned up would look awesome.Perfect working condition.He though it was broken but all it needed was the ending adapter to ps2.

Dare I say those key caps make the board more attractive? Why did CM have to use that "gamer" font :[

just let my Focus 2001 go in a freebie, great durable keyboard with awesome click action.

It was time to add something a little more... purple. Reaper, can you update your list? here is my Leopold Tenkeyless with Purple-Blue PBT key caps, Filco Ninja key caps and a Purple Transformer Esc key.

Help out a fellow overclocker and Keep the Freebies Going! cheers.gif

I currently have three. One full size Filco cherry brown, one tenkeyless Filco cherry black (I don't like the switch but it makes a good beater board for travel), and my crown jewel, a uniform 30g Topre.

Someday I'll probably get a few cherry red Leopold keyboards to replace my current two cherry switch keyboards.

Yeah, I think it looks a lot better. I'm not a fan of the odd ball font they use on the stock keycaps.

This this this. I will either be getting that one or a ducky, after a year of glossy I'm ready for a change.
