After a few weeks of retrobright, the front cover has returned to its original color. The old rusty cabinet was 100% sanded with several different sandpapers, then the metal was treated so it doesn't rust again, and then it was painted in the original patterns. The motherboard was overhauled, capacitors changed, cleaned, as well as the power supply. The floppy and cdrom drivers were also disassembled, cleaned, and lubricated, the final touch being the excellent cable management.
