Hi. I dumpster dived a Slivertone 4789. About five minuets in front of the trash man!
The guts work... in as much, they power when I turn them on. It needs major work. My bed room seems to have taken on a late 1930's look, so this will be my show piece. I really dont ever see this radio being "functional." But I want to give it a new functional life. The cabinet, is 100% sound, and reflects very little "badness" for its age. aside from some scratched finish, a heart scratched into the wood, with "rob." (wounder who Rob was?)
I am looking for the trim for the ban/ station indicator bar. That I assume said, "Silvertone." And any other brassy bits, that might need to go with this. http://ithypno.deviantart.com/
. <-- link to pictures of it they are right on the front page. Please, tell me what else I might need.
My over all goal, is to mod it, into a computer. HOWEVER, I am going to work around what I have. I am not going to make new holes, or mar any of the case.
I plan on refinishing the old wooden case, to look 1930's showroom finish perfect. Any insights or help will be very welcome! This is but a second summer project, after building a "vintage" gun rack!
