Submission + - Refreshing the Amiga 1200 With New Plastic

Ichijo writes: Several years ago, the Amiga community developed a way to restore old, yellowed ABS plastic to like-new condition, and put the recipe for the gel, dubbed Retr0bright , into the public domain. But then it was discovered that the effect of the Retr0bright gel is only temporary, and plastic treated with the gel soon reverts to its original yellowed state.

Now, Amiga enthusiast Philippe Lang has started a new Kickstarter campaign to create new, improved molds for Amiga 1200 housings and do a licensed production run using anti-UV ASA plastic in the original color plus black, transparent, and 9 other colors. His team is also investigating the feasibility of producing new Amiga 1200 keyboards if this campaign succeeds. This follows a successful production run by Commodore 64 enthusiasts of new C64c housings using the original injection molds and new C64 motherboards designed with modern ASICs and DC-DC converter technology.
