Default Re: Baird T5 restoration project.

I was thinking about something on those lines. The critical part of the restoration will be the removal of the control panel. This will have to be done in order the new front panel can be fitted. Let's hope it doesn't disintegrate when comes to releasing the joints between the control panel and the upright corner pieces.
