Cleaning QFR rubber coating?
« on: Fri, 21 March 2014, 10:59:40 »
Is there a way to clean the rubber coating? I notice after a week of using mine that the rubber picks up oily fingerprints/smudges.

Yep.  That is one of the only things I hate about my black QFR. The gray case doesn't seem to show as much prints IMO.

I really hope that they don't put that rubber coating on the Novatouch.

Here's a how-to for cleaning the rubber off and also painting it if that's why you're cleaning it for.
Basically you sand off the rubber with fine sandpaper.
