Inside The Case, Before Polishing.

Inside The Case, Before Polishing.

Normally I just wipe inside the case with a lint free cloth and brush the dust from the hard to reach places with a paint brush, but I had an Idea and decided to experiment. The inside of the case is coated with a metal oxide to help stop interference, over time the metal gets tarnished and becomes dull. So I decided to polish it with some metal polish. I used a lint free wipe to apply the polish and another to buff it up.

This is the case before I started polishing.

The new PRAM battery will need to be soldered onto the logic board. Later models have a battery holder attached to the board, make things easier.

This is the case after polishing, it is hard to photograph it now as the inside is so reflective.
