In-freakin'-credible! Always love to see work like this. As a restorer of old radio sets I can vouch for the fact that restoration work can in may ways be much more difficult than an original build.

Now for the important question:

What is your avatar? If I had to guess, I'd say it looks like two slices of toast waving at a teapot.

You should be proud of your efforts. A great rebuild.
I never seem to find amps that I could use as a project!

A work of art and something to be proud of

Yes. Well done indeed. The chrome plating and auto painting must have cost a few bucks.


Mr. Zenith... To me it looks like two slices of toast waving (or scratching or knocking) at a turtle in the distance.
