    Hello Everyone,

    Recently scored a 3042 FX in need of some TLC. Figured I would document my progress for fun. This girl will get a fresh paint job and everything.

    Control panel disassembly and cleaning. I will more than likely replace the panel decals.

    Please share if you find a source for new panel decals - Ive never found a part number for them - was thinking about printing my own but what a pain for just a few .

    M906906 - KB label is the part number. I just ordered these for a customer as well, however they are on a 1-2 month back order from Mimaki.

    Fresh parts ready to go in. All new caps, rubbers, coil waste tubes, absorption pads and pump tubes.

    This girl will be cleaning like a champ.

    If you have never changed your pump tubes I highly recommend looking into it.

    Look at the deformation of the tubes.
