Below is the sort-of before picture. Work was started on this chassis prior to my involvement. It is shiny metal since the paint has been partially removed by wire brush. The filter caps were removed and cut open. The power/signal cable to the receiver chassis has had the connector cut off. Having done one of these before, these issues should be easy to resolve with the objective being reliable operation with an original appearance.
I am going to replace parts as needed before remounting any of the iron. It is easier to work on the chassis while it is 20lbs lighter.
