Logitech G710+ Carbon fiber vinyl # Looks

Did it for a friend

How to ?

Tools required

1. Screw driver set

Modding requirements

1. Carbon fiber vinyl
2. Scissors ( Should have flawless working )
3. Blade ( Use a new one for smooth finishes )
4. Good workplace with enough light ( I usually work on my iron stand )
5. Patience ( Must or things get messy )
6. A small box ( to place screws and all the small parts that u take off from your component )

Place the keyboard upside down and un-screw all the screws . G710+ doesn't have any hidden screws all will be visible at the bottom of the keyboard. Make sure you put all those screws in the box # Modding requirements #6
Now G710+ has multiple clips that hold it together nice and tight so even after removing all screws it will not come apart right away.
I usually insert my nail between the 2 surfaces to come apart, to find clips position. Just insert the nail and slide it along the border once, you will have a nice idea where the clips are present. I use nail because it doesn't scratch the surfaces and u can feel the pressure once u get near a clip.
After finding the clips positions ( i have shown in pics too to save some of your time ). Use your nail ( i use thumb one ) with the keyboard lying upside down insert it in ( thumb belly facing up ) near the clip position one by one and twist it outwards. You will hear a small click and the clip will open.
It has pretty weak clips shown by green circles in pic so be careful if you hear a lil louder click u have broken your clip :P
Now the clips near your arrow keys area really PITA but they are strong ones too after removing all of the clips at the border i pulled the frame near the arrow keys ( takes some force ) and the frame was free. Make sure to un-plug the sound drum wire ( talking about the wire in red circle in PIC # 6 )
Now to remove the shiny part from the grey part ( see pics for reference what i am talking about ) Place the frame upside down. You will clearly see the clips that hold these 2 parts together and also some small melted pillars.
Those pillars hold the 2 parts aligned and then they are melted to give a firm joint and also to make them settle perfectly across all their length.
I used a blade to cut all those melted pillar head and then un-clipping the 2 parts apart.
Did the same thing for that orange part of the keyboard.

Now the carbon fibering
Make sure you cut the vinyl a lil extra then required just to be on the safe side.
Some people use PVC cards and stuff like that to apply carbon fiber i use my palm never had any issue with that. Just peel one edge of the vinyl and start applying it from one side to the other.
After applying sue your finger to make sure that its applied good enough across al the parts / edges.
Use a sharp blade to cut the excess ( place the blade at a 10-15 degree angle with the surface and just swipe it across and get a smooth neat cut )

Spray Painting
Not a fan of the glossy.shiny spray paint finish but matt paints are really hard to find.
However here are the tips for spray painting
Clean the surface thoroughly and spray outside.
Dnt spray in direct sunlight.
Shake the can well before spraying 1-2 min. Its must.
Maintain 0.7-1 foot distance from the surface to be painted.
Spray in rhythm like the car wipers move.
Spray as much thin layers as u can.
Wait 5-8 min after every coat.
