The directions do say to remove any excess, so the connector shouldn't be wet. But, the new quick-drying aerosol should work great on cleaning gunk out of connectors.

Nice! This type is indeed news, at least to me. Thanks.

The price is not so nice however...

If anyone has any spare port covers (bottom, top, card reader front hole cover) that they can spare please let me know.

Hoping to find a reasonable price here rather than exorbitant auction site prices.

Thanks, dmh

Just a quick update to say I now have all the covers I was looking for :-)

I would like to send a big thank you to the two forum members who reached out to me directly and were able to provide the missing covers, both original and 3D printed.

Very grateful to these generous forum members and thankful for this forum.

Regards, dmh
