Hello fellow men and women of great class and heightened sensibility,
I never got to have a brand new T43p. The emotional void left driven me to buy every other ThinkPad I've seen. I've owned 53 ThinkPads in the last 5 years, but none of have been the one that got away. As a last resort, I have embarked on a crusade to restore a T43p to its original glory.
There's just one problem: I can't find a spare base kit or the spare labels. I think I'm ok now, after having mulled it over for some time, with leaving the existing base on. But the LCD cover kit comes with a new LCD face plate and no replacement radio activity/HDD activity/caps lock/num lock/etc sticker over the front LEDs! It's the same sticker that has the coveted model number on the right hand side, and which essentially defines the machine's design. Or something. Well I'm not sure how to put it academically, so I'll just emphasise how UNCOOL it would look if missing.
I'm going to continue assembly (in the morning when I'm less likely to lose screws), but it'll never be right unless I can get a new one of those stickers or manage to recycle the (imperfect) old one.
Does anyone know where I might find it? (Checked ebay, no luck.)
