I've already got my case top painted. Currently waiting 48 hours for it to cure before I sand some dust out of the finish and repaint hopefully somewhere other than my kitchen floor. Then I'll let it cure for a week and add a matte clear coat.
So I've got a few questions regarding the mods you've suggested.
The universal TKL plate. What does that do exactly? Allow you to use the switches with the original pcb unsoldered?
I've been trying to find some explanation of plates but I find geekhack to be very hard to find the right information on.
How do the korean springs change things? Better feel?
That frosty flake controller looks amazing. Though I also can't find any info on what exactly it allows you to do.
The Universal TKL plate allows you to open the switches with them still soldered to the PCB. It helps if you use switch tools, like in this guide
. To install the uTKL plate, you first need to desolder all the switches from the PCB, remove them and the stock plate, then install the switches into the new plate and solder them back onto the PCB.
Korean springs can give you a heavier or lighter actuation and bottom out force in your switch, depending on the spring you use.
The Frosty Flake is fully programmable, and you can use custom firmwares. Gives you the ability to program any scancode to any keyswitch. Also, you can add function layers.
