DIY shine-through caps
Prototyping NP profile shine-through caps by neXus5169.

Love the NP profile blanks but I miss my RGB for layers etc. Cannot find any XDA / NP profile black with shine through so I decided to try it home made style.
2 mm hole on top, 3 mm hole bottom filled with hot glue from the inside (used tape on the outside to make it leveled).
Looks quite okay.

Was also wondering if epoxy or even nail polish could be better to fill the dot.
