Nice work! I hope the electronic restoration goes as well.

Can't wait to see it with the knobs on. It sure looks good now, before it lights up.

Excellent job, there's nothing more satisfying then a project like that!
I think the worse shape a set is in, the more fun it is to bring it back to life.
Looks like new!

thanks everyone for your complaments ,i think i surprised myself its change my outlook on cabinet rebuilding im going to take what i learned from doing this one and apply to the next one, instead of trashing a cabinet and waiting to find another in good shape might become a thing of the past .

I've been away for awhile.

This set is fantastic! I bet it will be an easy electronics restoration.

Very, very impressive! The bezel colors and that green especially look spot on. What did you paint those with?

just used a marble can made by krylon,not sure if i will use that brand next time didnt realy like how the paint layed down ,or maybe because its been so hot outside not sure what kind of reducer they use in a normial spray can. but i did more prep work to that bezzel than anyother part.

i have alot of the chassis strip now ,im going to replace every pot on it to much rust damage the circuit breaker is fused together as one mass,little chew marks from mice on the wiring ,im suprised every tube socket cleaned up like new ,i think ill have most of the work on the tuners full of rust the cover was off the vhf tuner, im going to see if i have another before i re-do this one save me alot of work. i just wish i could get the blue gun to wake up better ,the green & red are nice and strong, the blue gun is lagging behind about 50-60 percent ,im still playing with it though i dont want to hurt it.

Oops... sorry... I didn't realize you had a thread somewhere else. I'm on board ship right now, and I can't keep up with what's going on like when I'm home.
