great, thx!

Yes! I've not started restoring this unit, but I'm glad to have the WCS.
There's not much memory there if I recall.

> As to the plastic light buttons, not a chance :) I have a handful or two of spares, but will need them for two 2100's that haven't been restored yet - and they are a high wear/stress part and will always break over time - and I doubt they will be found in the wild anymore... sounds like a project for a 3d printer. Definitely would have to print an entire set, I'm sure it would look very different brightness/color wise.

> A thought - your missing cap is the B register select. Kind of an important one. Swap it with Fetch, Ind, or Execute - unless you're doing slightly less than common stuff those aren't important. At least, not as important as being able to select the B register :)

I think I already swapped the missing button. Just have not updated the
pictures. :)

I don't have the top cover for the unit either in case you have one of
those sitting around. :)
