Nice photography.
Dis you make a new mask for the VT71?
The metal speaker cloth on the 7VT3 looks like an overlay. Did you add that?

I am a 7" Motorola enthusiast because I think they were a couple years ahead of their competition.
Nobody else had the looks, the small size, the low weight, and the performance for the price.
Sure, they are not rare. That's because so many people agreed they were the best for the money.

On the vt-71 CRT mask I used flexible vinyl moulding like you see in a commercial building around the base of walls , just formed it around the crt and glued it where the ends joined. Its a loose fit around the CRT. It’s a cream color so it matched pretty well.

On the Bakelite , that’s a thin decorative metal material from a craft store, came in like a 8x10 inch sheet, the original was damaged.

Thanks for watching, glad you enjoyed it.
