Re: My Atari STE has had the Retrobright Treatment

Hi Buddy Thanks for your pics Yes the disk drive does look a bit patchy but the 520 looks awesome :-) All I can suggest is that it was left too long our the cling film was wrapped too tight ?? Always remember to spread the BBlonde evenly and and it does not have to be sealed air tight. Hope that hel...

Re: For sale: Atari Mega Ste

Hi Buddy

Because of postage to the UK for both the Mega STE and monitor would be a killer would you be prepared to accept an offer for just the Mega STE?

I Will offer if ok with yourself £25.00 plus postage :)

Re: My Atari STE has had the Retrobright Treatment

Yes Wonck is right. What the clingfilm does is stops the peroxide drying out so even after six hours the plastic needs a good wash down before reapplying to your case. If you leave it exposed you will get fading on the original colour of the plastic. You cannot really see it but I did the c64 keyboa...

Re: My Atari STE has had the Retrobright Treatment

All I use is Jerome Russell's BBlonde Peroxide Cream - Small Bottle is about £1.89 in Superdrug (Got some funny looks when I bought it :lol: )

Use a paintbrush to put on a quite thick coating all over the yellowed plastic and wrap in clingfilm so when in direct sunlight it does dry out

Re: My Atari STE has had the Retrobright Treatment

Started about 1030am finished about 500pm so about 6 to 7 hours :)

No the keyboard was fine prior to retrobrighting although in the past did a c64c keyboard and came up fine apart from the space bar :(

Re: My Atari STE has had the Retrobright Treatment

Yeah, picked up the tip whilst trawling the Internet as I did a 64 previously with little difference after 8 hours.

Covered it clingfilm and it worked a treat

Re: My Atari STE has had the Retrobright Treatment

Thanks for the great feedback guys :D

I did do a few systems last year for re-sale (C64's and Amiga's) but never an ST.

Used the B Blonde peroxide trick and wrapped it in clingfilm and left it out in the sun for six hours.

Not bad for a treatment less than a quid :D

Laquered as well !

Re: Noob to Atari ST - Setting up a Satan Disk

Hi Yes the image was the latest from 8bit info I did eventually get it to work on a 1gb image after letting the ST boot first time and then resetting the machine before the Satan was reconized. I am running TOS 1.4 would that make a difference why the 2gb card would not be reconized ?? Thanks for th...

Noob to Atari ST - Setting up a Satan Disk

Good Morning Everyone Just thought since I have recently aquired a Atari ST 1040STF that I would love to have contact with the forum and get some great feedback on how to get the best from the machine. Must admit I have always been a C64 and dare I say it Amiga Junkie, but the ST has always Interest...
