Yes, I've noticed a lot of CoCo gear that I've gotten off of eBay has
the smell and the stain of tobacco. I realize that some CoCo cases
yellow because of sunlight exposure, but others yellow because of the
tar residue that clings to the machine after spending years in a room
with an owner who smokes.
Does anyone have a good remedy to clean off the tar?
