April 27, 2018 by ST Graveyard / Restoration
There has been so much debate on the internet in the past 10 years regarding retrobrite. I have been having mixed feelings about the subject ever since I have learned of its existence. The success stories on youtube do look beautiful. But the horror movies posted by some people who got their precious hardware back all messed up, the resurfacing of the yellowing after a period of time, the fact if it actually harms the plastic or not. All these things caused so much controversy. But after reading and discussing about it for years, I finally gave in to the temptation. I knew exactly which technique I wanted to try out, and I'm so glad I did. I had the perfect victim in sight for the project. So if you want to learn a bit more about retrobriting your precious ST, come along and follow my first adventures in restoration. Not just any project, a double dose as I will be bringing back 2 STf computers to life.
