The Sobell chassis is now out of the cabinet and has had a thorough clean with the vacuum cleaner, a damp cloth and an old toothbrush. I've also cleaned the cabinet up a bit although it will need more work.

The chassis doesn't look too bad on top, but the underside shows a lot of evidence of a very hard life. There are several very blackened components, caused by overheating and some very suspect looking replacement wiring in the HT part of the power supply.

Before I go too much further I will have to evaluate what represents a reasonable level of restoration. The sets are not rare and even working ones are not very valuable (maybe £20) so unless I want to use it as a deep restoration learning exercise it's probably only going to be a "get it safely working" project.
