CTC-5 Westcott restoration

Well I finally got one! The TV I have always wanted. The CTC-5. Traveled all the way to Massachusetts and back home to Florida. By car. It was a 19 HOUR drive! It was well worth it in my opinion. Got the set for $500 with a good rebuilt 21axp22a that tests like new on all three guns. Not to mention the cabinet is in great shape! I have already started work on this set and I have stable HV and great vertical and horizontal sync. I have recapped all boards but the chroma board which is up next. The set is already showing great potential.
I will post new work as it is done.
Here is a photo album with more pictures (will be updated as work continues)
