Any one that is able to come please email me for the info as to where it is.
Last meeting I found a AWA 467ma on the freebies table. Very rough and dirty but complete. The badge was broken but a kind lady in my facebook group donated a complete one.
On opening it up I found all paper caps replaced with mustard caps . All I needed to do was replace the electros and the 6au6 valve and off it went like a new one.

The case itself was very stained with nicotine. It took a week and a half of sanding and polishing plus a few days of soaking in peroxide cream ( you must wrap it in cling wrap and leave it in the sun ) it really brought the case back to its former glory. I will try and send some photos.
I have sent a photo of the actual peroxide cream that is ideal for this treatment. It wont hurt the plastic, it will just restore the colour.
