Been working on this one for a while now, the cabinet was almost a total loss. Chipped/faded and generally cruddy photo finish, creaking and loose wood panels, and the brass was in poor shape. Many many hours went into bringing this set back to life, but now that it's sitting pretty in the living room it's all worth it.

Only thing I didn't keep was the broken 'Deluxe' script, I think it looks just fine without it. Set has a very nice picture, horizontal section runs at only 180ma, and I modified the top so it's removable just like the earlier sets. That will help make convergence jobs a snap, no more looking at a mirror. Hope you guys like it. 8)

Don't know if Lee does, but I certainly do.
Absolutely excellent work, Nick!

It looks really nice. Only thing I'd change is the black grill cloth, but that's just a personal preference.

Beautiful job on the cabinet! I think the black grille is a little distracting, but the important question is whether you like it.

I actually like the black cloth, anything is better than that puke inducing brown stuff it used to have. And actually it's not cloth, it's burlap so the weave is still spaced wide like the old one. I had to put a piece of black foam underneath so it looked right. 8)

That looks great I like how it says color below the tube the black grill looks real smart and high tech for the era a little something special imo

That truly is a great looking cabinet. Something to be proud of...to own that set.
