I have a pair of Quicksilver monoblock amps that I'm in the process of restoring. What precipitated me to do this is that my chassis have become corroded. I decided to do one at a time so that I could use the other as a guide (there are no schematics for these amps that I could find). The other night I stripped the first one. Desoldering was the biggest obstacle since it was a lot harder than I expected. I have received some advice from other DIY'ers that will probably make the next amp go smoother. I intend to strip the chassis of all parts/paint, and have them professionally chromed, or, have new ones built using highly polished stainless steel. It depends on which option is least expensive. I will continue informing the group of my progress and, in the meantime, all comments and suggestions are welcome. Cheers!
