Carbon Fiber skin for CM Storm keyboards
« on: Tue, 22 December 2015, 15:39:20 »
Hey guys,

I recall seeing Imgur photos of some dude who DIY skinned his QFR-i with this material. Unfortunately I'm no longer able to find the original link.

Is there anybody here who can make this in the form of a pre-cut sticker kit, so noobs like me can use it on my CM Storm keyboard?


Cheers!

You're just looking for Carbon Fiber vinyl.

The highest quality vinyl you can get will be DI-NOC by 3M

cheers

Yes, that looks correct, but I'm looking for something pre-cut (just peel & apply) and would be willing to pay for it

Doesn't it kind of defeat the purpose, though, using something that just looks like CF rather than actually being it? And how are you going to handle the corners convincingly?
Look, having nuclear—my uncle was a great professor and scientist and engineer, Dr. John Trump at MIT; good genes, very good genes, OK, very smart, the Wharton School of Finance, very good, very smart—you know, if you’re a conservative Republican, if I were a liberal, if, like, OK, if I ran as a liberal Democrat, they would say I'm one of the smartest people anywhere in the world—it’s true!—but when you're a conservative Republican they try—oh, do they do a number... But when you look at what's going on with the four prisoners—now it used to be three, now it’s four—but when it was three and even now, I would have said it's all in the messenger; fellas, and it is fellas because, you know, they don't, they haven’t figured that the women are smarter right now than the men, so, you know, it’s gonna take them about another 150 years—but the Persians are great negotiators, the Iranians are great negotiators, so, and they, they just killed, they just killed us.

Dunno, maybe it is actually CF?

I suppose the seams will be visible on the corners.

Here's an example of somebody who did the mod, though not on a Novatouch

You could always try hydro dipping it like in this video
