Default G15 - in carbon fibre [56K warning]

Look what I did to my G15:

The silver plastic was getting scratched, so I cleaned it and put this vinyl on it (from GAM mods, an Australian store).

One word of warning for those who might want to try this yourself: The G15 is a pain to disassemble, and reassemble properly. And it's easy to break/rip/scratch things, like the ribbon cable for the LCD screen.

Why do you have a G5 and a deathadder? They are surely fairly comparable in performance. You should use your waste carbon fibre on the G5 and mousepad
