Heres the steps taken to dismantle the Logitech MX518 Gaming Mouse. We're painting it with a Carbon Fiber effect


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.


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


Filling emblem hole of MX518. After mixing 1/4" size drop of Evercoat with dab of Blue Cream Hardener (not pictured)


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


Allow filler to cure for 60 mins before sanding w/ 400 grit sandpaper


BEFORE PAINTING: USE THE PROPER SAFETY PRECAUTIONS

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

2. Work in Well Ventilated Area

5 coats of Rustoleum Sandable Primer (or until surface is filled)... allow to cure for at least 2 hours


Scuff the final coat sandable primer with 400 grit sandpaper before applying base color coat


The base color coat will be ISUZU factory color "Pewter" by PPG


PPG Automotive paint applied with HVLP spray gun




Gloss Black painted applied over rubber mesh (tool box liner) creates carbon fiber weave pattern




Light coats of Gloss Black will blend in the weave pattern


Polyurethane clearcoat applied for maximum durability and shine

Great mod, thanks a lot! This seems so easy, I don't know why this idea hasn't occurred into my mind before!
