    same as what unker ianho done not long ago..dissamsemble, paint and assemble back my mx518

    im not a good painter and im using el cheapo spray can paint but the result is satisfactory to me

    now it look shiny and mtach the center part paint job but i hope got a better cam to show u guys :lol:

    here is some pictars

    remove 3 screw below part(hidden under stickers)

    completely remove what necessary for painting and done the sanding

    completed :thumb:

    another side

    anyway the most tired part is sanding..the rubbery kinda coat give out some funny smell when im sanding..smell like burning plastic

    the paint part well 1 layer primer, 1 layer paint and finish off with a layer of cleacoat. Should i put more layer to get better finishing?

    well its tiring its dirty but its one heck fun to waste a day :mrgreen: maybe next is paint my keyboard :thumb:

    i have the same mouse and it looks identical o_O :lol:
  9. I was thinking about picking up that mouse how does it feel. I think i see the difference but just barely is it shinier.

    The "feeling" of it should be a difference since he sprayed on a layer of clearcoat.

    The overall feeling of the MX5xx mice is superb(unless you have huge hands) and ever since I got my MX500, I've never liked any other mouse.

    my hands are kinda big and mx518 is great, it feels good on the hand.
