I actually did think for a second that you hand etched and burned the wood to get those designs on them LOL but nonetheless, that is ultimately cool, I would love something like that.

With how close the keyhole is to the display screen, would the key ring be knocking against it while you ride?

Would it look better if the g310r image was a bit larger or is that not going to work with the engraver?

Maybe a bit bigger,but its difficult as the engraver is 2 axis,so it will be a problem to engrave round things

Yup, didn't think it would be able to engrave properly when the surface starts curving around. If you have an engraver...can you engrave the plastic panels on the g310r? Just curious, because the customization possibilities will be endless!
