Hey all. As you know MI is having a Mod your Mouse modding contest. Since I am a member of the staff here I can't enter and win any of the cool prizes but in fun I thought I would do a mod for Project 13 that has been needed for a long time. I bought myself a brand spanking new Logitech G9 wired mouse and I aims to paint it to match the theme of the case.
This is by no means a hard mod. I'm sure many of you could do MUCH better. So this is a challenge to you, fellow members of modders-inc. Lets see what you got. I know you can do a simple mod such as modding a mouse and bring your A-game and give us something really special. SO LETS SEE IT!
To get it started I'll post some pics of the "Mod in progress" enjoy!
first of all I had to dismantle the damn thing. Twelve screws in all to get the thing apart and 6+ separate pieces. Taking apart is never the hard part really it's the putting it back together, am I right? :lol: anyhoo, I'll let the pics speak for themselves.
I'll have to add the pics of it together. Those were on another camera. anyhoo, here it is taken apart
bottom and then top below. (sorry blurry, not my camera)
all the pieces laid out
Then I give each of them a light sand and wipe them down with alcohol
Then I give them a coat of metallic grey. This will help the mouse match the keyboard. You need a light background with anodizing paint. It is mostly transparent and the metallic is going to show through the red.
First coat of red. Looks light and orange now. Let me get a few coats on there and it will darken. More pics to come soon.
