What if I bought one off eBay and then dropped in the Alps switches from my Apple with orange sliders, which are a little clickier than the blacks but feel really similar, used the black base from this one and use the ivory keys from the new one? I think that would be the coolest SMK85 in history. What do you guys think? Should I do it?

If it's something you'd be interested in doing...why not?
