Hey everyone. I noticed Framework stocked the blank keyboards and top cases. I went ahead and ordered the whole top cover so I can keep the other as a spare.
First: The install was super easy. Five bottom screws out, a lift of the top case, and a firm pull on the top case cable gets the old one off. Reverse the steps for the new top case. All in all it takes less than 5 minutes.
Ordering the keyboard on its own is substantially more involved, but didn’t look terribly difficult - it just seems more time consuming.
Here is the final result:
I love the look. Its bright out, but the backlight looks like it’s going to display the edges in the dark. I touch type (and regularly use a blank HHKB) so having no legends is fine with me (plus it looks cool).
