    you can also change the color of the keys buy using some plastic dye found at automotive stores. Fair warning, not all plastic dyes are the same. Some act more like paint, so I try to find the ones with acetone in them. I think they are more for hard plastics like ABS, instead of vinyl, but I am not positive.

    I believe Matthias’ last name is Wandel–unless we are in a parallel universe.
