Here it is with my ITAC Systems Mouse-Trak Industrial. I chose the hammered finish so they would match, and it came pretty close.

Thanks guys. I love the feel of the cherry blue switches, and the zinc arrows keys are a joy to use.

I ended up refinishing the frame because the decal was starting to lift. I stripped it down and gave it several fresh coats of the same Rustoleum Hammered black, and then reapplied a new Cherry decal and clear coated over it. It looks a lot better now, and I shouldn't run in to any decal issues going forward.

I also installed an aluminum spacebar (thanks Armagedda!) after giving it a hand-polishing up to 12,000 with micro-mesh pads. The spacebar sounds pretty close to my Model F AT now, which I'm liking.

That hammered finish looks beautiful!  Excellent photos as well, the leather goes perfectly with it as well as the zinc keys.  It's hard to believe that it was a can of spray paint from home depot...  ITAC Trackball too? Take my +1!!!!

Thanks, all of the doubleshots and crystal caps are from a G80-8113H.
