pulled the chassis cover off the bottom of the chroma section (this one has that done point to point not PCB) yikes a bunch more wax paper caps. I can see this is going to take a while. One of my other unrestored 5's had a PCB for the chroma section. interesting that they are both considered 5's this is not a minor difference (at least in construction, maybe the circuits are the same).

there is a lot of wax film on on the PCB from the caps that must have oozed wax which then flowed all over the PCB. Normally I don't bother to clean them but these are so bad (wax film with dust captured) that I cant read anything. So I spent a little bit of time to clean up the boards.
