What's the best kind of paint for painting a keyboard case? My Ducky Shine 3 warranty sticker has been put through, so it's voided the warranty without me even doing anything, so I'd like to customise it.


What do they know of England, who only England know?

Get some etching primer, a scot bright pad, 99% rubbing alcohol and some spray paint of your choice. I used Autotek etching primer and some Rustoleum satin silver paint from my local hardware store.

Lightly scuff the surface of what you want to paint, then clean it with 99% rubbing Alcohol to get rid of any surface oils from your hands, Then give it 2-3 thin coats of primer. Then give it a very light scuff and clean again with rubbing alcohol. Then apply thin coats of paint in 15-30 minute intervals (Allowing it to surface dry) until you are happy with the application. Then leave it for 24 hours to harden all the way through.

Thanks! Think I'd be able to get this kind of stuff from B&Q? I don't know of many hardware shops in my area.

I think B&Q sell rustoleum or is it Homebase... I bought the Autotek primer from Ebay for like 9 quid.

I'll brows Amazon and eBay then. Plus, the Homebase here closed down.

I'm looking forward to buy an mk, considering the CMS QFR Rapid-I and the QFR TK with Browns.

Should I buy the TK or the Rapid-I?

I need the numpad sometimes, but I also want a shorter keyboard. Is there any cheap numpad that I could buy additionally?

Well if you need the Numpad at times, just go for the TK, it will save you having to spend more money in the future.

If you plan on replacing the keycaps with some better ones at some point I would go with the Rapid-i.

I would never spray a clack! It was originally a horrible pink and red colour... However, if I had to spray a clack. I would of done exactly what I did here. The finish on this keycap is lovely!

got my new victim from @TheProfosist it was an old wyse terminal keyboard that I plan to use the switches from and the plate to make a 40% although it looks like it is going to take a lot of work since the bottom row is odd and had pcb mount stabilizers for the space bar

this is how i got the keyboard and also how @TheProfosist got it originally no caps or case

here it is after a little work soldering

this is probably what it originally looked like based on the layout
