I haven't fitted it to be honest. I initially bought the ZX81 for my brother who is 50 this year and he wanted a vintage computer to tinker with. So, I thought I would either fit the mod myself or let him have the fun - so I've decided upon the latter!

I have ordered the vLA81 you mentioned though and will replace the faulty ULA. (Draws breath) - I may attempt the installation myself! I will practice on a small amplifier pcb to hone my soldering and desoldering skills and have a go. On the other hand I might wait until I can meet my friend again and ask him!
