Hello all, I wanted to hear your thoughts on this; I recently acquired a recapped SE/30 (which as of this past weekend is now using a CF card for solid state storage and super-fast startup!) The machine is beautiful, but what has proven a mixed blessing is the damage to the plastic of the front casing that occurred during shipping (I say this because I ended up getting the machine for free via UPS shipping insurance due to the damage and an unseated ROM SIMM which caused SimasiMac) To cut to the chase: Has anyone had any experience repaired cracked or broken off plastic on these compact macs? My plan is to reattach a piece, fill in the cracks (pictures below) with some kind of material), then sand it down so it is flush with the rest of the casing. Here's a link for a two-step plastic I found, if you have any suggestions or alternative solutions, I'm all ears. http://www.plast-aid.com/ // mdent23
Elfen posted a topic in Mac II, Quadra & CentrisAlong with my PM6500, I pulled out my Q950 out of storage. I lucked out, the battery did not explode. But first thing I noticed was that the logic board was not in place properly. In looking about, there were more broken plastic pieces in the case. Removing the board, and cleaning it up of the broken pieces, I got the logic board to fit in place properly. It is obvious that somebody was as its side door was open, and for a while something moved inside. That has to be cleaned up. I'll be using an alcohol/soap mixture and a scrub brush to clean out the inside of the case in the bathtub. But all these broken plastic pieces. I will need a couple of front bezels and figure out something for the support rail in the front of the machine by the drives, but remember, this thing fell out of a four story window when I got it. The case is cracked in several places, but it's still together. So what glue would be best to fix the broken parts inside? I'm also going to need a hard drive for it; I have it's original drive in the IIfx. How much do Q950 bezels go for on ebay? It does turn on and does Bong. Thank God! I just need to clean her up and give her some plastic surgery.
