    Default commodore 4016-n with extreme water damage

    I got a commodore 4016-n with extreme water damage cheap on ebay, I want to repair and mod it to make it useful,
    I could do with some info on making a hardware and software 40 / 80 column switch +ROMs
    CRT circuit diagrams
    and commodore high resolution graphics board 512x512 pixels, I want to buy or build one
    I have the ram to upgrade the system to 32k and 4 video ram chips
    the keyboard was damaged so I could rely do with borrowing a space bar, return and shift keys for me to copy

    Default keyboard

    I have taken the keyboard apart and cleaned it, it is missing a lot of keys so I have been casting copy's of the ones I have, but I could do with borrowing a space bar, enter, and shift key to copy, the keyboard will never look prity but I will get it working, I will add some pics later

    I have also scrubed the mother board in the sink with shower gell and water then went over the remaining bits with acetone and cotton wool buds, it looks good now, all I have to do is replace all the corroded ic sockets and the rusted nuts and bolts, the regulators where very rusty, I cleaned up the contact ears and sealed the rust in withe wood varnish,
