If anyone is interested I thought I might do a thread on me Resto-Modding this machine that was responsible for me becoming the computer-nerd that I am...
If noone is interested... I'm doing the thread anyway...
Even before I received the Master itself, I had started collecting hardware to upgrade it with.
The following is going to be installed in it:
- Gotek Floppy Emulator
- 2 ARA II from Retro Hardware
- Internal PiTube with Pi Zero
- hWMultiOs - IDE 4in1 ROM switcher from Retroclinic
- TurboSPI MMC
It isn't too bad, but I still wanted to have a go at restoring the case.
So I went out to my local hairdressers and got some 40 Volume (12%) H2O2 solution that has the consistency of shampoo.
I also bought a UV fluorescent tube.
All electronics were removed from the case, the keyboard are was taped off.
I botched together some feet to hold the UV light over the case.
I then poored some of the H2O2 solution in a cup and used a brush to smear it all over the top of the case.
After switching on the UV light, I checked the color once an hour and reapplied the H2O2.
After about 8 hours I called it good enough and here is the result:
Before: After: The difference can be seen especially well if you compare the color of the top cartridge slot-cover (was still in original color) to the rest of the case in both the before and after pictures.
Now I have to do all 4 sides of the top and bottom case halves also.
