How did you go around the Commodore Amiga logo on the keyboard?

You cannot remove the logo from the keyboard, it's not like the one on the case.

Btw, great work.(y) (although you sprayed also the keylock!:p)

It appears the logo and lock have been tape-masked from what i can see!
The question is about the keyboard, has it actually been re-painted? And if so, how did you protect the logo there? Nice job nevertheless(y)

Hi, I used masking tape and a sharp blade to cut around it, I never sprayed the keys just the space bar as that was very yellow.

I think it works and now takes pride of place on my desk.(y)

^^^^^^

Ahhhh!.... :mrgreen:

Now you have to show the detail & you know it. :p

I must say though, from the pics you posted, you sell those on the other Bay as brand new, & then get sued there-after. It appears to be the done thing over there atm. :LOL:

I find your comments un-called for(n), I have no intrest in selling or offering a service just a proud amiga user that was happy with the job I had done.

@ Megamix: It is a nice job, I hope my posting did not offend you:)

@ Megamix: The joking of Kin was probably only related to recent over expensive hardware and the good Retrobright etc. But I only see joking no serious words, I doubt that anyone was meaning you would be selling it for ...

So I'll hope you see the slight misunderstanding..

It depends from person to person.. Did you put stuff back together? If it is a good holding paint job, might be interesting to post the paint used. I started my paintjob with paint that I had to spray 5 times to cover..

:whistleblower:

@ Kinnie

That comment is more than a bit offside.... that's flamebait or trolling as far as I am concerned....was it called for?

You're nicked, chummy.... :nod:

You are getting some infraction points for those remarks.

Oh dear & ffs m8y! :huh: I wasn't suggesting you would.

I'm so sorry if you take my comment the wrong way & sincerely apologise.
I was not suggesting you should go & do that purposely, any decent person wouldn't, but over @ the other Bay, folk are being sued left right & centre for all sorts of scams atm. Some years ago, a whiter than white A4KD was sold for mega bucks & when it was recieved by the purchaser, it was a spray job & not genuine white affair. You can imagine the mayhem over that deal. :roll:

Anyway, it now appears I have my first AmiBay warning thank's to my post being taken the wrong way. Not very happy about that tbh & nor the trigger happy Staff either.... :butcher

Best wishes all the same fella.

Kin

PS. I still want to see your Macro shot. ;)

OK,

It seems as though there's been a mis-understanding here. Kinnie's message could have been taken more than one way and it seems that he didn't intend it as it came across.

@ Megamix

If you are happy with and accept Kin Hell's comments as above, I'll reverse the infraction. Over to you.....

Yeah cosmic. One of the downfalls with Forums is text written, lacks the facial expressions to go with it. Coupled with Megamix's mis-interpretation of what I meant, I got totally railroaded! :Doh: :LOL:

The magic missing word here is "could": I think it's what is missing from Kin's post, and I think he probably thinks it's there so can't see why the post is so damning.

At the moment, what Kin's written is downright wrong: "I must say though ... you sell those on the other Bay as brand new, & then get sued there-after"

That's a clear accusation, and even with a smilie it's not on.

Add the word "could"

..."you could sell those on the other Bay"...

And that makes the point nicely.

So my guess is that there's a word missing from the post by Kin. Without it, it's an accusation: with it in, it's a mere joke observation.

Hope this helps. Feel free to tell me where to go :D
