That was really fast. Looks excellent. How was the condition of the chassis?

Moderately dirty, no corrosion. Wasn't too hard to clean up. Started playing on all bands after I swapped out the filter caps, then it was just a matter of doing the usual work for this chassis.

Thanks! Yeah, I feel very lucky that Radio Daze still has the original style grille cloth for this set. Takes a lot of it (one large and one medium piece) to do the job on a chairside, I think it cost me more than I paid for the radio :lol:
