post #21 of 37
How have you noticed your mouse skates have been holding up after the mod? I'd like to do this mod but I don't know if I want to get new skates...

To be honest, this is what's holding me up the most. I'm more or less convinced that I'm doing this by the end of summer though.

I still am loving mine, and the carbon film hasn't shown a single bit of wear.


ALSO - who is going to do the first wood-grain G500? thumb.gif

Hopefully you lol. Would love to see it!

They stuck back on just fine, and I haven't had any issues with them. If you wanted you could always superglue them, but I didn't, and they've stayed on with no problems whatsoever.

That looks great.

Also with the white vinyl.. has it gotten dirty from general use? if so is it easy to clean? Ive got a thing for white atm but I cant handle it being even the slightly bit below WHITE

After a few weeks, it still looks like it did day 1. It has stayed very clean. The vinyl seems like it would be very easy to clean, I'd probably go with rubbing alcohol and paper towels or something similar to clean it.

Edit: Upon more careful inspection, it has gotten a little dirty where my fingers contact the buttons, I'll see how hard it is to clean tonight.
