This is pretty cool project, good luck with the group buy!

Cherry Blacks - Unlubed - Filmed and springswapped with tx 55g mediums - Alu Plate | Pretty happy with this, the blacks were cherry picked so they weren't that scratchy to begin with, but currently breaking them in, may lube them with a dry lube like ro59 or ptfe powder.

lubed with tribosys 3203 | Like topre a lot, prefer it lubed but did make less tactile but that might have been a skill issue. Probably will get more tactile over time as the domes age.

bad orange alps lol | Definitely needs a restoration. Planning on wax boiling them and maybe a replacement pcb because the board has only 2 key rollover apparently.

Gateron Yellows - Lubed with 205g0 - 62g tx mediums - pc plate | Probably my favourite keyboard already, feels super nice and sounds pretty good, it's got a great layout as well. Probably gonna build this with mx browns, I feel like it would suit the board more.

Great looking, classic set. I have the GMK version and will likely pick up the Alert and R5 kits to go with it.

Whew, almost forgot today is the last day for this! I was originally gonna order the base kit too, but I'm a little tight on cash right now & have GMK Skiidata. So I ended up ordering the alert, extension, R5, & relegendables kits! I know shape wise KKB keys fit perfectly with GMK keys (they're not the exact same shapes, but so close you'd never notice), now fingers crossed the color matching is on point!

Nice, thanks! Worst case & they don't quite match I'll just grab a base set of this when extras go live.
