You might have to improvise a bit but what the hell with your budget... :P :o Just did a quick scan on ebay, no selectric blue keycaps. It's the rare IBM Selectric I (The Blue Bomber / Selectric 721) http://typewriterdatabase.com/1962-ibm-selectric-i.5230.typewriter http://munk.org/typecast/2013/01...

Ahhh found the blue keycaps.

Pulled from a IBM Selectric then put on the beamspring.

That is a great idea!

Blimey.
It's a matter of finding the boards not money for me.
