If I'm seeing it correctly, it's one plate for both 86 and 87 layout, with you being able to move stabilizers around into "switch" slots on the bottom row for the 7x spacebar? Way neat.

Consider me interested for the 60% case depending on pricing!
It's a good width!  If it's half-width it's too narrow, and full-width is too wide.

Titan color is grey BL, and hard anodizing will made this look deeper.

sure :D plate support centered and off-center caplock, and both winkey&winkeyless layout
