That picture shows how corrosion can happen when you power something up, it's accelerated on pins where current flows. Those will be the power pins or pins which had higher current flows.Honestly, that damage in the 3rd picture doesn’t look like it was from that cap. I’d expect all the legs in that area to have the same corrosion, not just patches. That looks like something fell on that area and corroded it, cap leakage usually doesn’t cause that sort of corrosion that looks black like that.
Edit: it is from 1992 though so those caps do gotta go.

I love that mono monitor with its built in coil for the display cable! Made for nice tidy cable management!LC II with a monochrome monitor
Lovely Harlequin Mac compact bag you have there.
I forget who, but someone here puts QR codes on each computer and then has a wiki on their network that the QR codes link to. Each QR code takes them to a page that describes the current state of the machine they just read.I finally started including notes on mine as well...that is an excellent habit to get into. I always struggle with how much information to include, now that I have some with floppy gears replaced, and did I service the floppy, and when? Does it have an original HD or did I put in an SD solution and when was it last imaged - or do you just keep a few items on the post-it and the rest in a spreadsheet? (that I never seem to enter)

Anyway - I love your storage solution, your new additions, and I particularly like that you also have a TI PEB occupying space alongside the rest of your collection! I have not seen one in a dual floppy configuration before. I didn't know they supported that.
That honestly is a neat solution!I forget who, but someone here puts QR codes on each computer and then has a wiki on their network that the QR codes link to. Each QR code takes them to a page that describes the current state of the machine they just read.
