    Idk why he is complaining about the marble look to the plastic after the treatments. I honestly think it looks fricken awesome!

  3. Natasha Wolfe says

    you should OF put aluminium foil on THE leather handle before retrobriting the plastic

    Your title reads like a football result. Was that deliberate?

    I'm abit surprised that on the handle, you didn't wrap plastic around the leather part of the handle to protect it. LIkely, being in the direct sunlight for hours helped damage it but I think even wrapping some printer paper around it and then plastic wouild have helped prevent that as it would have kept it shielded from both direct sunlight and the solution you use to retro-bright. Just my thought. Likely the retro-bright solution you used and the sunlight both caused that…

    you restored the CASE not the computer. So, LOL!!!

    The reason peroxide ruins the leather is because it's an oxidizer, H2O2, it gives away that oxygen molecule and essentially becomes water. Leather is often tanned with chromic acid which acts as the catalyst and when exposed to pure hydrogen peroxide will actually oxidize the cellulose in the leather so quickly that it catches on fire.

    What a terrible restoration… Filter capacitor not replaced…..damaged the "leather" with H2O2… oh god….

  15. 00 A says

    Did the capacitor pop?

    Hay good work by 8 bit guy. All classic computers was much as basic robots that used much of its motors parts, so that felt as if home robots n PCs at same time.

  22. spark fox says

    Would a paint roller roller work to help make the streaking almost completely gone?

  23. Quack Maximum says

    My face when I realize you're gonna leave leather exposed to peroxide😱

  24. Michael F says

    David, Respectfully, What if during the retrobrighting process every time you had planned adding more peroxide goo you rinsed the old off and reapplied a new round of the goo?

  25. D G says

    Thank you for making all the mistakes for us.

  26. Scott Billingham says

    It's supposedly…not supposably lol!
