RE: Wanted: HP71b port cover
Nate's been tweaking the model on Shapeways to the point where we feel it's close enough to the original. The last sample I received didn't snap into the 71 exactly like an original, but perhaps with a little trimming of the detent tab it might be improved.

The white plastic can be dyed using fabric dye and there are plenty of instructions that can be found on the web. If you come up with the formula for matching HP's dark brown, please share it.

These 71B port covers Nate designed work well. I too would like to have the same olive/brown to match the 71B case, but until someone cracks the code on how to reliably match the color, black ones will do for me. My next shipment of these should arrive later today, together with a few other parts. Smile Smile
