That clear one pieced together is the one I used to expose the screen with. I screen printed the text on with a water based black ink. The pic where the face plate is all taped down is my screen press. After I print the ink and flash dry it I had to put a few layers of rattle can clear coat on over the text or it will rub right off if you touch it.. same way I did my 500 when I painted it white..

Oh cool, you got a screen press. :nod:

One of the 3 machines I need in my life, a screen press, 3D printer and a vinyl press :mrgreen:

I posted this in Wanted Gear, but I'm cross posting here hoping some of you that have customized your MPC1000 may be able to help me out.

I just bought a MPC1000 that needs a little TLC. Before I spend a fortune on MPCStuff (I do need to upgrade the pads), I thought I'd reach out here to see if anyone has any spare parts in a box laying around collecting dust. Here is what I am looking for:

Left Side End Cap - Original Red
Q Link Slider Knobs x2
Translucent Clear Buttons x3
Rubber Feet x4 (Probably just going to get these on MPCStuff, but if you got them I'll take them)

If you have any other MPC1000 stuff laying around, I'm open to discussion, but this is a list of what I need now to make this thing a little more functional. If you have any of this stuff, let me know how much you would like for it and hopefully we can work out a deal. Thanks.

I’ll look around my spare parts bin.. for the rubber feet, I got some dope ones at RadioShack, they are bigger and square and a harder type rubber, way better then the stock ones..

Thanks man. Your custom 1K is dope. Thinking about doing grey sides, original blue body, grey cf card piece, grey fat pads and all black buttons. Got some $4 rubber feet off amazon that are doing the job for the moment. In the mean time, holler if you find any of the parts I mentioned. Thanks again for looking.
