Restoring an Adam...

Postby Ice Breaker » Sun Mar 04, 2012 7:48 am

I got an Adam from Darren the other week while I was at his house. It looked like a big pile of nastiness, and since it's original color was close to white, seemed like a good candidate for Retrobriting...

It's taken about 2 hours of cleaning so far and 4.5 hours sitting in the sun so that the chemical reaction takes place. I've got the keys from the keyboard soaking in retrobrite right now, and I'm hoping by noon or so the first batch will be ready to go.

Nah, it won't take too much longer to fix so it won't be much of a disease. More like a mild cold.

The concoction for the keys to soak in wasn't the right mixture, so after 2 days it barely took the yellow off. I'm out of Hydrogen Peroxide (the strong stuff) so I gotta wait until the next batch shows up in a few days to continue.
