Title: SX-16 restoration project
Post by: K1ZJH on March 19, 2014, 10:05:44 PM
Just finished putting this old beauty back to as original as I could. The original repairs were hack jobs. I located original wax caps rebuilt them (there are new electrolytic caps in the cans, and yellow mylars sealed in the wax cap shells.

Chassis was almost fully stripped and all of the parts cleaned.  Front panel was touched up. Made new pointers for the knobs, which is still a work in progress.

It is a fun band cruiser!
