Hi everyone,

    I received a MicroVAX 3100 in the mail today, and it was horrifying.
This thing has sat in a warehouse (not a very nice one) for *years*.  It was
*BLACK* with dust and dirt.  It is obviously going to need to have every
single component completely disassembled and cleaned. (You should see the
inside of this things tape drive (320mb 620foot TZK1X-CA))  Anyone have any
hints on cleaning such a mess?
