Damn! One hell of a restoration job there man! I can't say I would've used those lovely SKCM browns for such a project, but to each their own. Awesome job, enjoy using that beast of a board! :thumb:

Thank you for the feeeback!
I can understand why some people wouldn't want to use these for the z150 as the board was originally made with linears, let alone light-weighing switches.

Awesome work. I may need to do something similar. I have a few beat-to-hell Zeniths kicking around as well.

Now that you mentioned it, I've already moved forward with restoring a ZKB2.
It mostly consists of restoring the switches and mounting plate, but the switches are tons of work.

Cheers, king.
