Having just got a Spectrum 128 Toastrack, I am looking for some parts to cosmetically restore it, and get it more usable in this day 'n' age.

1) On the little rainbow badge thing on the bottom right of the keyboard. the paint has chipped away on mine and I'd like to replace it. Does anyone have a non-chipped one of these? They look to be the same as the 48K+. I'll consider a 48K+ case if nobody wishes to try remove the badge. Potentially found one with Roy_Bates :)

2) A Kempston compatible Joystick interface. I'd prefer one that is tall rather than wide, to minimise the footprint of the spectrum. Found offsite :)

3) An RGB Scart lead. There are 2 sorts of RGB Scart for the 128K spectrums - one for the Black +2 & +3, and another for the 128 and Grey+2. I need the latter. It has diodes and other bits of magic inside. I could attempt to make one myself but thought I'd ask here first before buying the bits. Found offsite

4) A very long shot - a box and packaging for it?

5) Even longer shot? A numeric keypad for it??

I did say it was a long shot :)

Oh, and thanks to Roy, I now have a nice tidy badge to stick on my 128. Gonna leave some +ve feedback, as it was a genuinely nice gesture. :thumbsup:
