I think a vinyl wrap is going to work. I think I am going to track down a cheap sheet of carbon fiber vinyl and tear this thing apart.

I will need to replace the mice feet, does anyone have any suggestions? I use a hard razer exactmat as my mousing surface.

Yeah, I just took mine apart as a trial run, and messed up one of the feet. The smooth part seperated from the sticky part tongue.gif

Or you can just get HyperGlides.

Ok guys, I got some hyperglides on order. Once they come in, I am going to attempt to tear this thing down. Once I get it apart and it appears I can do a carbon fiber wrap, I am going to go for it. I will be doing a guide for both the dismantling and for the carbon fiber wrap. It will be more of an overlay than a wrap, but it should look sweet when all is said and done. ANYTHING is better than the copper/black/brown/splatter job that is on there now. wink.gif

Another option that may actually serve a purpose in addition to improving looks is using Plasti Dip Spray. You can adjust your spray texture with some practice from baby bottom smooth to lizard skin rough. I prefer rough texture myself, but takes a few coats.

The great thing about this over traditional paint is, if you grow tired of it or want to send it in cause it's still under warranty....you can peel it off. Here's what I did to my Logitech M510. I'll eventually do this to the G700, but I love it as it is for now.

Thanks for sharing that! If my carbon wrap ends up peeling off or looking uglier than I had planned, I will definitely give this a shot. thumb.gif

Does that Plastidip stuff wear off easy/fast?

It really depends to be honest.

If the mouse is handled like a fragile item that it is, then I doubt it will peel...at least, mine won't.

To lessen wear, the item coated should be sprayed with more than one coat to enhance durability. (I can seriously feel a weight difference with my M510 being as heavily coated as it is.) Also, what helps is to spray all around the item at least twice, then focus coats on the target area. This creates more of a wrap versus a layer. If you only spray the top of an item, yes...it will peel eventually. If you spray all around, it's less likely to peel until a tear happens.

I have my xbox analog sticks sprayed with this for more texture and they get heavy usage and no pealing has occurred and it's been a year now. The first time I did it, I only spray the top part of the analog sticks with one or two coats. They peeled after a couple of weeks. The second and last time I did it, I did a full wrap and 5 coats minimum......it's still going.

Have a blow dryer in hand when coating to speed up drying time. Should only take 5 minutes to spray several coats with a blow dryer or heat gun. Also, practice distances and technique. The faster you swipe, the smoother the texture. Spritzing/blow dry/spritz/blow dry/etc... creates textures. You can enhance texture even more with table salt grains. Spray your first few coats, while wet...add table salt to the area. Dry it, then spray coat it again. All sorts of stuff you can do.

The Logitech 510 has a total of 4 actual heavy coats, then spritzed at least 5-7 times. Took all of 5 minutes to do.
