Looks great external and I notice complete with the trimming tools. I already have one and with the weight might be going as well soon.

Sadly as we get older these beasts get heavier!

It'll probably help to say whether it is the AR88D or AR88LF variant.

I can see at least one of the trimming tools (they're usually missing) in its clips on the capacitor cover, but the overall RF cover seems to be missing, unless you removed it for the photograph? These covers seem to often be missing, but they don't seem to matter.
