Default Making use of a Fada case .

I have had this case for a few years now , and have been thinking of building a chassis into it , so this is what I ended up with , donor set was a scrap Bush TR82 ,I had a spare dial made for previous Catalin repair , all the components were fitted on to a new chassis ,the o/p stage was easy as all the transistors were attached to the transformer lending itself to an easy transplant , the dial drive took a bit of thinking about , but ended up ok , using the correct diameter drum to give the right amount of lateral travel ,the w/c switch had to be mounted at the rear, I love the two tone green , Mick.

It's a very impressive transplant overall and the green is great as you say Mick. Have you added a discrete notice somewhere to avoid confusion for future researchers? It would have made a great magazine article!
