On with the repairs.

The base.

In the previous post I fixed up the bezel and primed the base.

The top of the case.

The top of the case had been a bit battered. There was a crack running down one of the back corners and plenty of dings and dents.

Now for the silver.


Putting the bezel back.

This is a bit worrying because the pillars don’t seem to be as secure as I’d like. there is a bit of “give” in them. Even though the glue has had several days to cure. I’ve put the tube back and left the case the right way up but with some padding beneath the tube.


I’ll take a look in the morning and see if it’s given way.
