In my sad quest to build an enormous pile of msx-es, I recently acquired another fine specimen to add
to the heap of junk. This fine specimen is in fact a sony hitbit,and SHOULD be white,but the previous owner must have had
a smoking habit that stained the white into a horrid yellowish white. Now, I tried cleaning it with this alcohol foam stuff,but it doesn't realy have satisfying results. You can still see what the original colour should be under the keys.
Now,does anyone have an idea what to use for this?

it may also be yellwoed because of the influence of the sun light. I heard some people use toothpaste to polish it to get the colour back... What MSXes are in your stack?

one or two of the same kind of MSX is kinda ok.. (a change from 8245 to 8250 can be logical, if you want more hardware-changes, or your 45 drive gave the pipe to me) (don't ask Smile )

but say 10 MSX1's, 10 MSX2's, 10 MSX2+'s, and a turbo R is .. well, way beyond what I call 'sane' Smile
