    This is going to be win. Can I outbid you? :lol:

    Edit: TWENNY DOLLA! That's even shocking by my standards. Now to see if it goes for less than retail. :lol:

    Speaking of painting, I saw over on GH a thread in the classifieds where someones otherhalf had painted a bunch of caps by putting paint on water and dipping the caps in.

    I can't seem to find the link sadly, but what paint would they have used for that? I'm guessing that the caps would have needed to have been primed before hand and then clear coated afterwards?

    Ok, so a tray of water, with different coloured nail polish put on top the the cap dipped in?

    Thats an aweful lot like some of the craft stuff I did in first school almost 30 years ago!

    Looked good mind.

    Want the ErgoDox PCB only?

    "The best way to do this is to have you check out normally and notify one of our live chat reps so they can put a note on the transaction saying to only collect payment for the PCB ($44 shipped to your door).

    Let me know what works best for you,

    - Will"

    He probably doesn't realise I'm in the UK so there'll be $20 shipping to boot, but that's no biggie compared to a case one didn't want.

    I'd like to try an ergodox but just don't have the cash to spare. Other half just had her job put at-risk so only light spending for me just now.. hoping I don't have to back out of the toxic or gmk GBs... :(

    Anyways, Back to Topic!

    My 1800 is getting there:
    In the mail now I have; green leftshift, complete white on black numpad block for an 1800, and a backspace key

    Just need to sort out the F row now and get my hands on a 7 unit spacebar. As you can see I need a lower profile F6, F8, and F11.

    Can anyone help with any of these? PM me if so!!!

    some pics of caps available for trading. Note that the set of dark caps are dark grey and not black - colours are clear on the numpad shot with a white on black enter key next to them..
    These are in pretty good condition but need a clean.

    Again, PM me if you see something you need/want.

    Everything:

    You can get a 7x spacebar currently from Fengs aluminium round 2.

    The black one would look neat bro and it's only $30?

    Good call, I'll have a look. Depends when he needs paid at the mo.

    Edit: Damn, shouldn't have looked there. Want a black on for this board, blue one to match my poker case for the GH60 if I can afford one, and orange for my skidata. :eek: :confused: :(

    Thanks Mark, replied.

    I think that digit only numpad looks awesome on the board GMC, I'd keep that on it. :)

    Thanks kid. 1-9 will stay, but the bottom row will change. The . would look silly next the proper white on black and 0 has to be replaced

    Quite, that's going to be an absolutely astounding looking 1800 when you're done!

    @Margo Baggins

    Replying to PM here mainly due to the last para.
    The ISO 1x keys you asked about are very dark grey rather than black, check the pic of spare numpad keys with a white on black enter next to them. I reckon with a clean you could get away with it.

    Once you got your grab bag, let me know, happy to send if you still need them. Apply any trade credit to spreadie and mark1903 as they sorted me out with caps I've been searching for.

    You do know that they will only hold it for a set period of time, something like 10 days....

    It's not a case of them holding it - They haven't even attempted delivery yet! Paid for the customs charge last week, they said they would deliver it this week.

    This is the photos of my caps from the bag. Let me know if there's anything anyone needs or if you've got anything I'd need towards a WoB cherry profile set. Or the rgb mods though I'm guessing that's a long shot.

    Edit: well that didn't work, need me some image tags.

    Edit2: trying again
