Very cool to see! How did you manage to click it in? (I even wonder how they did it when it was manufactured, did a lot break?) I would suggest to sand the outside with sandpaper. (first a coarse one to remove the 'steps' and then with a fine grit to get it a bit smooth.) Then paint it in the correct color. (You can get the correct color if you go to a (car)paint specialist store)Hi LCARS,
A friend printed the foot for me and it works very well! Thanks for making the model and sharing it. If anyone wants to see how it looks and works, I took a video of me installing it, and one showing it in action. https://photos.app.goo.gl/v2kGqzEkqhv37ZuN8
while the color isn't perfect, it's close enough that it just looks a little yellowed instead of a full on modern replacement. And this finally made me get my own 3d printer - that stuff is awesome!
Just wanted to mention that I've had good luck with just recapping the original LCD's on a couple of these. So that might be worth the try for just a few cents.I have a Portable 486c with a dead LCD, as well, and I’m going to attempt the replacement with a different LCD, the Mitsubishi AA104VH01.
I’ve just ordered the parts, so I’ll update the thread when my LCD arrives.
