The last photo is one of the white dial marker line removed. I didn’t want to see that in front of the LCD display. Several solvents were tried to remove it. Each with cotton wool buds. What seem to be called Q-Tips in other parts of the World. Each applied carefully to the very edge of the window so that we could see the results. In the end good old “Methylated spirits” did the job of substantially removing the white line without destroying the Perspex window.

More coming soon. Next up, my Minima logic board.
