Nice one, very professional!
How did you added the characters to the keyboard after the paint job?

I do not like the glossy finish. You maybe should have used vinyl dye instead!

Great work, the glossy finish would probably look better in person, but does suit the ferrari theme.

Who is going to do the Skoda one?

"Vinyl Dye is a special kind of paint that is used to paint plastics. Unlike normal paint which puts a color coat on the surface vinyl dye 'seeps' into the plastic and colors it from within. This means that the surface detail of engravings/reliefs is not affected and the paint can not be scratched or peeled away. "

WOW, incredible!!!
I didn't know it could be done... a paint which gets "absorbed" and doesn't peel away!
Where can it be bought?

The worst thing about normal paint to me is that it;s difficult to form a uniform layer... you can notice discrepancies usually, and these glossy types are dust magnets, hard to keep clean for they remain sticky for months.
