Default 1970's Blaupunkt Hamburg restoration - completed

Some time back I posted a thread on a Blaupunkt Hamburg radio (Ford badged) that I was going to restore. I'm happy to say I finished the work, finally, this afternoon. Happy to say, the problems were mostly cosmetic - apart from the usual 'how do I get this bit off (or back on)'!

Here's a picture of the result. I'll upload a video somewhere else as they don't seem to be allowed.

Thanks again to everyone here who helped. Wouldn't have been done without you!

Here are the two threads with all the info on the restoration. Worth a look if you are attempting something similar.

First thread: Trying to identify early 70's UK Ford car radio (Blaupunkt Hamburg)

Second thread: Car radios in 1970's era Ford Escorts
