Phew! At least the XFMRs are still there. You may want to leave them as is only redo the covers with black paint. Must be local production as Philips never used transformer covers.

It looks like someone already had a go at it. The black caps are not original, nor is the white ceramic resistor. The green resistors with the value printed on them are also not Philips but prolly original. The mustard capacitors are famous and original as are the blue electrolytics. The resistors in the power supply look tired and should be replaced. Can't figure out the GZ34s (parallel or something else?). Oh, and all caps on the top side of the chassis (big cans) will be toast.

A shot from the front panel would help, as some more closeups. The cover over the tone control (ECC83, prolly standard Baxandall) is in the way as well. And the EF86 preamp is completely hidden by the shielded volume control (at least I think that's what it is). Oh, stick to one amp when you make more piccies. The better looking one...
