I am so pissed the faceplate had a drill hole to the bottom right.

Nothing I can do about it.
Watch ebay for somebody parting one out.

The hole size looks about right for a small toggle. What about a tone control bypass or . . .

Beautiful Job. The paint job is a stopper. I don't think they looked as good when new.

Nice idea with the standoffs as binding posts/nuts.

Thanks for your comments.

I am pretty much doomed with that hole until I find another faceplate...as I think a toggle or any other stuff would just ruin the beautiful look (IMHO).

I too like it better like this than the original color. Very easy, I used a Tremclad black mat spray can. 3-4 thin layers did it.

As far as the chassis. Once sanded, if you want to bring it to mirror like condition, just use some green ScotchBride and dip them in a bowl containing warm water AND liquid soap (the one for the dishes) and bingo!!

Really easy.

I got that trick from a professional machinist who does stuff for audio manufacturers in my area.

Finally, the female speaker connectors are NOT standoffs. I bought them on Ebay. They are made especially for vintages if memory serves me well.

And very affordable at that....

Regards
Scorpion

Grand restore, nice job.

"I am so pissed the faceplate had a drill hole to the bottom right." Try popping in a small bolt or screw or similar in the hole, it may look slightly less ugly.

Ya, it's pretty neat... You can get it at Canadian Tire where the body filler is.
