i just put a black housing on my x70.

got it cheap on ebay (5.50) and needed a tri-screwdriver for the job (4.95).

started off with it and panicked when i was half way through as it was all in bits. really wish i hadn't started and shat me pants that it wouldn't go back together right.

carried on with it though, and got it all done and sorted.
fiddly assed job, but everything still works and it looks cool
