Remember a GEC "bow-front" TV that Cathovisor linked to on the website of an auction house in Bristol? Remember the excellent condition it was in?
Well this is how I received it.
My first reaction upon opening the box and seeing that on the front of the AW 43-88 was "holy shit!!!"
So... before I begin this restoration I have posted an ad in the wanted section for a suitable CRT. Pity, as this looks like an otherwise good set and I'm sure the AW43-88 would have had plenty of life left in it
Once a replacement tube's sourced I can't wait to restore this one! As some will know I've been after a GEC bow-front for many years and now I've finally got one, this happens! Not quite a larger cabinet one like a BT304, but still...
