Thanks again @sexton for the decals. I am now an Excalibur 1000 pirate. Here are some before and after photos of the Excal blue that I got used from Australia.

THAT looks sharp!

I got mine. Just didn't have a chance to put them on last weekend. Apparently I owe my uncle money and I have to figure out how much.

Upena that looks great! Sexton did a great job and so did Salt Shaker on the design.

I got the battery pod done but not the tube. How hard is it to remove the knobs?

take a large pry bar and they should come off.
if you have stock knobs remove yellow cap you will see a nut that needs loosed up. I would plan on replacing them
I replaced my knobs with Andersons.

Boy that will take all day with 6 knobs, I recommend WD 40 then hit them with the Air tools..much faster and cleaner.

Check about 1:20 in. OBN shows how to take off all knobs.

I've been inspired:

Now I need silver or black knob caps!

Clue me in on how these decals are made. In addition to making one for my excal II I'm wondering how they would do on Eurorack synthesizer panels.
Do they scratch easily?
