My Willzyx x0xb0x with SubStyler's Aluminum enclosure kit and knobs. The LED's are Blue Green & Purple, why? I don't know but it's kind of cool...

Looks good, i thought u have used the grey plastic caps which i've used for my x0x but i think your silver sprayed buttons are looking better in real.

It took a couple of different brands before I found one that worked well and looked good but I did my buttons in the spring of last year and they are holding up very well.

Wow, it's amazing how well you got the buttons to match the panel. I do quite a bit of painting of objects of various kinds, so I know just how difficult it is to match color/texture/finish with things. Well done!

do a search on the Mentor website: http://www.mentor-bauelemente.de/index. ... 0&&step=20
I use the ø12mm black anodized knobs for the upper pots and ø17mm round knobs.
the small knobs have the part nr. 505-6131 and the bigger round knobs have the part nr. 506.6131 (must be drilled up to 6.4mm (6.35mm) if you have Grayhill switches)
the black aluminum toggle knobs are fine too: part nr. 5582.6631 (must be drilled up to 6.4mm (6.35mm) if you have Grayhill switches)
