I have around a dozen or so HP 264x terminals with various states of
CRT decay. Most have developed bubbles in the face of the CRT. Some
are bad enough that the CRT has started leaking goo from the face.

I have no experience doing any cleanup work on these CRT issues. We
should have a CRT restoring party. Anyone else in the Seattle area
have "moldy" CRTs that need some attention, and/or have experience
doing the work?
