Hi There,<BR>Does someone here or know someone who can restore a Crosley 02CA console for a lady who emailed me. This was her grandfather radio passed down to her. She live in Utah. She actually wanted to ship it to me in NJ but I really don't have the time, I am lucky if my watch works... Please let me know.<P>Thanks,<BR>Sal Brisindi<P>------------------<BR>Visit my Website at <A HREF="http://www.tuberadios.com" TARGET=_blank>http://www.tuberadios.com</A>

The Crosley repair shop can handle that model easily. Right now, I am running about 3 months backlog, but she is welcome to put it in line.<P>I ONLY do Crosleys, nothing else. Shop rate is $70 per hour + parts. Work is guaranteed. I use original N.O.S. Crosley brand parts. Aside from the electronic parts themselves, her radio would remain original. If she chooses, I can 'restuff' the electronic components so they will still look completely original. That takes more time, obviously, and it is not something everyone chooses to do.<P>------------------<BR>DISCLAIMER: The above post is the opinion of the poster and is not intended as a political, religious, racial or gender slur.

No problem, Brian. Just take a sharpie and wrote Crosley on it before you send it!<P>I gave up servicing lesser quality brands early last year, and my blood pressure is now back down to normal. I only do military/govt. stuff and Crosleys. <P>------------------<BR>DISCLAIMER: The above post is the opinion of the poster and is not intended as a political, religious, racial or gender slur.

<P>You also need to do extremely high quality work using the highest quality parts and build a reputation amongst the collectors with whom money is no object.<P><P>------------------<BR>DISCLAIMER: The above post is the opinion of the poster and is not intended as a political, religious, racial or gender slur.
