I found a cheap black selectric for sale locally and I was wondering what it might look like to take the black caps off and put them on a 5251. Has anyone done this?

Not your exact mod, but a few alternate 5251 color schemes that might interest you

Yup.

The caps on my 5251 were not in great condition, mostly yellowed, and some had been replaced so the texture didn't match at all.

I use WoB selectric caps and i think they still look great.
