Is the weight shown in the first picture on the GB a PVD Brass weight or is it a PVD Brass weight with gold finish?

I don't think there is a difference.

Sure there is. That first photo is pvd coated gold finish. Pvd coated brass on its own just protects it from tarnishing. I opted for an unfinished one personally.

Is there a big difference in looks? What does PVD Brass look like compared to with a gold finish?

Natural brass is not as vibrant as a gold finish. Pvd coating has some flexibility in colors, hence the solver and rose gold finishes available on the full brass kits.

Can anyone help me on what kind of caps I need to be looking for if I opted for the standard hotswap layout? I wasn't thinking about how the cap sizes are different, what would I need to look for in addition to a standard set of caps?

I see. If I had got the HHKB layout would a standard set work or would I have to look for different sets as well? I was hoping to use my /dev/tty set on this board but I did not order the WKL options at the time, I only have a Novetouch right now.

You need to make sure you have bottom row keys that fulfill the required HHKB bottom row layout, which is
1u - 1.5u - 7u - 1.5u - 1u

Gotcha. I didn't actually get the HHKB layout I was just curious if it had the same requirements. I guess I will need to decide on a new set of caps for this board too.

Hope this is helpful for buyers and other GB runners.

I'm surprised half of the buyers chose clear PC.

imgur compression and the low resolution make things a little more awkward but it's still quite easy to trace a vector from the plate layout images in the OP, if it comes to that

Can anyone suggest some good hot swap switches? This is my first custom build and Iím not sure where to start. My current board is a Novatouch and I love the way that feels, anything close to that in the hot swap variety? Also, what stabs are recommended?

Topre boards are tactile, so I would recommend trying out some nice tactile switches. Personally I love zeal v2s and Holy Pandas (will probably be easy to find some once they ship from Massdrop). As far as stabs go, GMK screw in stabs are usually the best bang for your buck. Other people swear by zeal stabs, but they are quite a bit pricier. Just MAKE SURE YOU LUBE THEM. There are plenty of stab lubing guides out there, but it will give your board a much better feel.

Thanks for the suggestions. I see the Zeal V2ís being mentioned a lot, I might try those. From what I can tell, any switch will work on the hot swap board right?

As long as the hot swap PCB has the pinholes for the legs on a PCB mount switch, it should work with any MX style switch

If it doesn't have the pin holes you can just clip off the legs on the PCB mount switches and they'll work! I wouldn't worry too much about switch compatibility, as long as they're MX-style switches

Yeah seeing only images of the WKL versions has me thinking standard wonít be as nice. I went with PC though and donít like seeing the plate underneath, thatís why I went with standard.
