Dang! That looks really good, well done!
Just the local Commodore hobo and middle-aged PC hoarder.
eisa on Trademe. A lasting reminder of a Compaq fetish when I was younger.

I've been tempted to try Retrobrite, but the results seem to be a bit mixed. On the 128, it looks like there are brown stains, especially on the front, maybe the de-yellowing process hasn't been even all over? Or is it just the photo? I'm looking at the last photo, at the area below the numeric keypad and keyboard mainly.

The Commodore was bad washed and hardly bleached by the other owner of the computer, other tests like the mouse, the HP computer was 100% clear.
