My first Retr0bright, or how did I get to love vintage computing.

Back in 2012, I bought an Apple //c to mod it put a G4 inside. When I started cleaning it, I went online to do some drive alignment, chip reseating and general restoration. That’s when I stumbled upon Retr0bright. First I had some trouble finding xantam gum, so i settled for Arrowroot. Waited for a weekend and on a Saturday, I lay down all the parts on the sun for a full day.
The parts were so yellow, that I had to repeat on Sunday, but came out pretty good. After that I just fall in love with the process, and now I have retrobrited around 60 computers so far.
The final result came out so nice that I didn’t modified it, and started looking for the rest of //c peripherals.

The rest is history.

I’m an apple //c fanatic, born in Mexico but living in sunny Miami, FL, the perfect place for retrobrite!
I like restoring computers to bring them back to their old glory. Also like to combine new technology with vintage hardware to give new uses to them.
