I was the winning bidder of this not so well taken care of H89(pics in
the link):


The seller took the pieces apart and just mailed the important stuff.
Does anyone have any pointers on how best to clean it up. Is rubbing
alcohol a good choice. For $10, I thought I would at least try to see
if the soft-sectored controller might be working. There is visible
signs of rust and corrosion. Is it possible to clean it off with
anything? Is there anything I need to be careful about with the
floppy? Except for dirt and cobwebs, it appears to be in ok condition.

BTW: If anyone needs a (slightly rusty) CPU or terminal board, just let me know.
