My previous apartment had a basement which I kept all my gear in, so I set up everything next to this window since it had the best lighting. After three years of sitting down there, I noticed a few screws started to rust on some of my gear. Even with the window being sealed, humidity was coming through. I opened things up and luckily there was no internal rust, but now I know it's better to be safe than sorry.
Yeah, that's another side effect of living in a moist/salty environment -- my studio is a basement setup, and I have a dehumidifer down here going steady, attempting to keep that sort of thing in check.

Yeah, but if you leave it in front of the window for an extended length of time, a few years or even months from now we can hear about your "one of a kind" army green JP8000...
my micromoog panel overlay is one of a kind blotched/faded from years of sitting in a scrap shop
You should post in the BST threads asking about your one of a kind "urban camo" micro. I'll sit back and enjoy that show.
