Make your old Thinkpads have nice rubber again!

#1 Post by Thinkpad4by3 » Thu Jul 27, 2017 7:28 pm

Here are the magic ingredients to make your old Thinkpad shiny and unscratched! Alcohol and a Microfiber cloth!

All you need to do is apply some alcohol to a portion of the lid and rub the microfiber cloth in FIRMLY. Make sure not to make the area you cover more than about 3" x 3" or it won't work right.

I think the results are really good for the condition the lid is in.

Probably should be Thinkpad16by10.

LF: Interesting laptops from the late-1980s to mid 1990s. Anything of interest. Zenith laptops, early Thinkpads, laptop that just looks cool or has an interesting property. PM me if you have something.
