That its most likely just the aesthetics, its easier to clean if you have a bad habit of eating at the keyboard. I'm guilt of this at work due to being there wayyyy too much.

For an F122, Clamps to keep the plates together and a large sliding C-clamp to force long ends of the plates together and slide everything into the clips. Fohat.digs guide has some good pictures.

If the carbon tape works I can get a bunch of these made just in case others have the problem (including me) and do not have replacements. Hopefully it can minimize shipping since I'm in the US for a first hop. Otherwise I maybe to grab a spare F XT keyboard to harvest from.
