    Default screen repair

    I got sick of the faded and crazed look of the screen on the old girl and was getting close to replacing it, but decided to give a try to rejuvenating it. I figured I had nothing to lose by trying.

    Step 1 was to wash the screen

    Step 2 sand the whole screen with 600# wet and dry

    Step 3 repeat step 2 but this time with 1200#

    Step 4 buff with water rubbing compound

    Step 4 buff with Meguires plastic polish

    Step 5 Finish off with Vuplex

    The buffing was done with a cheap lambs wool pad on my drill

    I am actually quite pleased with the results

    You can't fix stupid, not even with duct tape..
