Restoration project of a vintage Silvertone phono-stereo from 1959. I picked this stereo up for free at a garage sale. The owner wanted to get rid of it and was happy to let me take it if I fixed it up and kept it out of the landfill. Under the grime and dust was a very beautiful and surprisingly intact amplifier. A simple cleaning, polishing, and refinishing was enough to make it shine again. It's currently a work in progress but I hope to have it completed and become a permanent fixture in my home.
