I've currently got ad-rs1600i's A600 with me for some Retr0bright love and I noticed that one of the keyboard support lugs on the upper case was broken and held up with black insulation tape. That wouldn't do at all....

So, I set to work to repair the lug. I found that the locating lugs that secure 5 1/4" bay blanks into a PC case were the exact same shape as near as dammit, so after a drive blank was mercilessly hacked, some Dremel fettling and some solvent weld cement later I have this slightly over-engineered repair. (y)

I think it's safe to say that it's not likely to fail for a long time....:D

Nice job Merlin! For me, working with the plastic bits of these systems is MUCH more difficult than the technology parts! :LOL:

@ Heather

Years of making model planes as a kid taught me a lot about repairing plastic, especially if they fell down from where they were hung from the ceiling!!

:LOL:
