Dismantle, Prep, Fill and paint Logitech MX518 Gaming Mouse






You will find 3, marked cross patterns for screw locations, using blade









Once opened, these 6 screws must be removed. 3 fasten in the switch for the right hand buttons


After removing right side button switch, 3 more screws are located beneath and must be removed


Before you can remove the MX518 mouse cover, you may have to push
up the left/right mouse buttons up to clear the mouse body.
Then, gently, pull the cover off towards the rear of the mouse.


Apply masking alongside the MX518 Logitech emblem before prying off emblem with small flat head screwdriver.




Scuff surface of MX518 with 400 grit sandpaper


To fill in the emblem hole, I'm using Evercoat, Metalworks, Polyester Glazing Putty with Blue Cream Hardener (not pictured)


Mixing 1/4" size drop of Evercoat with dab of Blue Cream Hardener (not pictured)


Filling emblem hole of MX518


If you apply too much filler, use paper towel to wipe off excess filler


Allow filler to cure for 60 minutes before sanding with 400 grit sandpaper


Now the Mouse is ready for primer coat!

Nice job. Do you by any chance have a guide for the MX3200 Laser?

Sorry, I don't, but Thank you for posting!

BEFORE PAINTING: USE THE PROPER SAFETY PRECAUTIONS

1. Wear Filtered Respirator Mask, Approved For Applying Automotive Aerosols

2. Work in Well Ventilated Area

SEM Self Etching Primer #3967. This primer is intended for coating bare metal and aluminum surfaces, but given me good results
on plastic. It's the only "self-etching" primer product I've used on plastic, so I can't vouch for what type of results you'll get from other brand "self etching" primer products. If you can't find SEM #3967, for primer coating plastic, I recommend using either [url=http://www.mnpctech.com/1TurbineMod9y.jpg]SEM's "Flexible primer" #39133[/url] or [url=http://www.mnpctech.3dpixelnet.com/picture_library/PFgrll9f.jpg]Plastikote brand "Flexible primer" #467[/url]


4 coats of primer... allow to cure for at least 2 hours

Very nice, what do you use to give it that permanent wet look? I know I plan on painting my keyboard and mouse to match my case but as it turns out, I've gotta paint my case too, well at least the faceplate, because the manufacturer discontinued green. Great because now my keyboard and mouse will match the face plate. I like the designs you guys do. I checked out your site and saw that FMA Case. Do you guys by any chance do custom mods?
