Advice needed.

Ignoring all commercial products, what are my options for my 6651's?
I want something cheap, durable, easily obtainable and easy to work with.
My screens are really good now and I want to keep them that way.

I feel like crying after seeing that...



I bought a few protectors off ebay, but all they are is a clear plastic sheet that kind of slides in under the edges around the screen. I'm sure you could buy a few overhead sheets (that thin plastic they use for drawing on overheads) and just cut to fit and it would work perfectly.

It was my first try in only a few minutes!

I do like that overhead idea though.

-After learning how to solder, I think I can do everything neater now. Haha.

Soldering + saran wrap + easily meltable plastic?


I'm scared

TY guys, sorry about re-inventing the wheel. I hoped someone had stumbled on the perfect self-sticking durable sensitive cheap solution. I tried ink-jet transparencies but they marked easily. Saranwrap, umm, didn't work out well.

I'll try the anti-shoplifter plastic next and overhead sheets. Hopefully......
