Alps RGB Mods
« on: Fri, 14 February 2014, 23:48:52 »
Does anybody know if there are ALPS RGB mods? Google search got nothing.

If no one makes prefabbed RGB mods, does anyone know how effective RIT dye is on gray keys?

SP can do ALPS keys, but I do think RGB mods for alps exist, I think I rememeber seeing them on a kingsaver or something.

If the kingsaver you're referring to was in the classifieds from Sherryton a while back those RGB were dyed by their owner.

Ah good to know. I will figure out how to use SP's GB system and start a GB for everyone. Seems like these aren't that common

I don't see many... but I do see often R G B legend on beige/light grey doubleshot. It seem to be the more common way it was done on Alps.

Note, SP's Alps caps use costar-style stabilizers, so the shifts won’t work on most existing Alps plates.

Of course, if you’re making a completely custom plate as well, then you should be fine.

Focus FK-2001s, and similar keyboards, use those Tai-Hao doubleshot caps, and the mods have colored letters on medium gray.
