RE: Touching Up the Silver on HP35 / 45
Hi all,

I got the Molotow Liquid Chrome pen today with a 2mm tip.

Results on an old HP-45 shown below. Sorry, the light was a bit dull.

Good shiny silver result.

I thought I gave it a good clean first, but a few spots lifted. I think this may occur if the original silver is a bit flaky and the Molotov "ink" gets under it and it might lift. Should be able to touch it up again later. Still, it looks a whole lot better.

There should be enough ink in the pen to do quite a few touch ups.

If you can, try to do a single continuous line without stopping. If you stop and go back over it in patches, there will be a spotty build up of ink that looks a bit uneven. The odd looking silver patches towards the bottom reflects this due to the light, but the calculator looks fine.
