My addiction has caused me to purchase another Apple IIe. This time, a Platinum IIe that is in very poor condition (but I got it cheap).
This one looks to have some text CARVED into the case. Not the top cover but just above the keyboard (which is missing keys). I haven't received the unit yet so I don't know how deep it goes.
So I've been thinking about how to restore this one. I thought about filling the engraving with epoxy and sanding it down. Then, paint the case. But I think the problem with that is the case has a textured feel to it and sanding it will cause a flat spot. Not sure if I could sand the entire case. Even if I could it would feel odd.
What are your suggestions?
