Time for Jumbo to get a bath. Soap and water did nothing. Naptha on the other hand did the job. BEFORE...
Now its time to hose down the clown! BEFORE/AFTER.
Barrel needs a few black touch ups.
So here's the elephant in the room. This giant bowl will need to be completely repainted!
WOW! Looking good! It's great when you find a part at a pet store!
Thanks for all the pics!
Waiting for metal to come back from the shop that does powder coating and chrome.
The motor on the tape deck had seized up. Pulled it apart and used some sand paper on this drill bit to clean it out.
Also cleaned up the tape head.
Had to replace a couple capacitors on the sound/amp board. They are original and apparently scarce. I guess if this thing takes a crapper i could just buy a Sony Walkman for $10 and stick it in here
The 100K volume pot was toast. Luckily had one in a bag of parts i bought in a bulk buy.
Need to find a replacement belt for the tape deck. Anybody know where to look?
1/8" diameter by 4 1/2" long.

They used to have those VCR repair kits at all of the electronics stores........ here you go...
Thanks for the links but can't find the exact size.
Quoted from ryan1234:
Can you use a O-ring?
Delicious Onion Rings? I wish!
Not sure, maybe. It needs to be rubber or something similar that has some grip.
Found these here but don't know what these materials are:
Inside of the door was a bit chewed up from people trying to pry it open.
Got some bondo on there now just need to paint it.
Underneath the metal instruction plate there's some untouched laminate. The plan is to transplant a circular piece of laminate the exact same size. From here...
