I wanted this purple so bad, but I couldn't find the colour in AU.This one looks really good...
Noodleshirt - he's repro'd a couple for me and they're perfect. I got him to print a C&Ds label for @djsheep too and it's spot on.I've done it with a hairdryer and great patience, working ever so slowly, but it requires more effort than I'm prepared to put in!
Be nice if someone made replacement serial sticker labels.
As soon as the boards i purchased from you arrive, i'll tell you how the peroxide method works. I have a much nicer blue shell for that SSF2T board, and i'm gonna try the peroxide restore method on the original blue case. I've used it before on yellowed controller plastics before and the results were amazing. No idea how it's going to work on a blue shell though... this will be my test. If it totally screws it, i'll just paint it for a custom shell.Reporting back;
I gave wet and dry sandpaper and Novus 1,2,3 multiple thorough attempts. I used them independently and together and on multiple boards.
There was little overall difference unfortunately (blue and grey boards btw).
(Strangely enough, none of my green boards have the discolouration at all).
If I had a buffing brush for my drill I would have attempted that as well. Hard to say if that would have made a huge impact - as it does indeed seem like the marks are discolouration and not merely surface stains.
+1 for painting over.
