    Default Storebought Replacement Hardware

    Hi,

    I've recently tried modding ny old Rubik's storebought to make it a little better. I'm planning of:
    Sanding down internal parts
    Making 'RCC' holes (simular to a Dayan)
    Replacing stickers
    Replacing core/springs/screws

    My question is: What brand of stickers/core/springs/screws would you use to replace the original hardware? And if you have tried these, what were the results?

    (I know of threads like this, but they are 3+ years old and new hardware may have come out since then).
    (1/5/12) 3x3x3 - 11.88/15.61/16.65 | 4x4x4 - 1:08.10/1:18.46/1:23.41 | 2x2x2 - 1.01/3.70/4.59

    i havent replaced the hardware but i did all these mods(apart from the sticker mod), and it turned out godly. Never pops, almost as fast as my zhanchi if not the same,but corner cutting is bad. Also use pestvics tut to loosen it if you dint know where to get repkacement hardware.
    [B]main: godly fully modded zhanchi.... average 25... been cubing for 6 months

    I would use either Dayan or C4U screws and springs, choose the one you can get easiest. Last get CubeSmith stickers.
    I live in Canada, I literally have to warm up before I cube :)
