I do not know yet, but since I never spill anything the only cleaning I would be doing is giving the keycaps a bath and either blowing/vacuuming dust. I figure a damp cloth should handle this surface just fine. It is not a jelly sort of rubber, it is pretty stiff.
Time will tell and if I do not like it I can sand it down and perhaps try some plasti-dip. I was just trying to go for something that is not going to rub off as quickly as regular paint.

Where is a cheap place to get blank PBT caps? Banggood has an 87 key set for $17 but I'd rather buy from a seller in NA.

define cheap?

the most premium blank PBT set is imsto thick pbt. people recommend getting it on ebay from geek feng.

KBC Grey Blank "Thick" PBT 104 Keyset Cherry MX Keycaps | eBay

EDIT:

people have been known to pay up to $200 for keycap sets ;) (albeit - i've only seen this once, it's more often around $140 for highend prices)

Cheap as in under $60 after shipping :P I don't need thick caps, I just want blank caps and everyone recommends PBT caps, has anyone tried POM caps? They're the same price as the PBT ones on banggood but I haven't really heard of many people using POM keys.

sorry, can't help you out. BG is your best option if you trust them.

I got some ducky pbt side printed caps (pretty decent - very different from abs), but their blank variants have been out of stock everywhere for a long time now. not to mention it's outside of your price range (shipping hurts alot :/ ).

EDIT:

sorry supa, I know this doesn't help you, but it might help someone else.

Vortex Thick PBT Double Shot 104-Keyset Group Buy (Deadline: Oct 20th) - double shot, NOT dyesub, thick pbt keycaps. keep in mind they're OEM profile, which makes things simpler for most people.

I've changed the colour schemes on a couple of Saitek KB's, I suspect the only pics I have of them though are on the HDD from my FTP server, which is presently sitting on a bookshelf. I should probably get off my ass and get around to putting that drive into one of my other systems.

Saitek Gamers KB with Green

Saitek Eclipse in Green

Saitek Eclipse in Red

And finally Saitek Eclipse in White - still using this, I swapped the blue LED's in my red Phantom over to white, then made the KB match, the lachesis was bought white.

This was the original eclipse that only came in blue.

I had a mod guide that I posted to a few forums, can't even remember the name of most of them now.
