  1. Hi, you inspired me to try a glittery gold paint job on my MS-70, great job! I can’t seem to get the switches out though, it’s the last piece! Do I just need to use a little more force with tweezers to pull the plastic buttons from the top of the device then the rest will follow? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

    1. As I remember the tops are pulled of. There’s a collar underneath that is snapped in, those are easy to break. Good luck!

  2. Hi, I’m trying to paint my pedal as well. You did such an awesome job!
    I’m stuck at removing the foot switch however. Was wondering if you remember how you removed it in your last photo? Thanks.

    1. Hello John.
      It’s some sort of rivet. I used a plier to get the straighten it and then managed to get it out. When mounting it back I used a center punch and a hammer to fasten it. Hope it helps. /Krister
