It didn't start out this way though. I tried using the black lights to restore the keyboard keys. Here are the results of that attempt.
Already this Commodore 128 is looking a lot better now than it did when I got it. There's still work to be done on the messy interior and the other half of the keys will need sunlight treatment. Also, as I was reassembling the keyboard, I found that several keys fall out easily. They will need new parts to stay in place.
I was hoping to get this computer restored with only two posts, but it's a bigger project than I had anticipated.
