Quote from: jsowers on October 27, 2016, 12:04:20 AMI've seen the shrinkage around the numbers that you mention. This sounds like a great solution. Did you use anything special or was it just fingernail polish remover? Also, I assume the one key you worked on was the "4" on that keypad. It looks a lot better than the rest.The part about denatured alcohol in the FYI--that's probably because it dissolves the Tenite around the numbers and letters of the dial bezel but not the plastic of those injected numbers and letters, whatever it may be. I've never had much help from denatured alcohol on TT keypads. It cleans well but it isn't a strong enough solvent to fix the finish problems, like acetone evidently is.Thanks for trying and posting this.
