Ok, I’ve spent enough time on this one project.  Once again, I couldn’t make it perfect (and that drives me crazy)… but it’s time to call it finished.

The final touches involved a little chassis work.  A few coats of paint (but I was too lazy to fix the existing scratches in the top of the case)…

There was a large hole in the side for the orginal CB microphone.  I covered this up with a piece of perfboard glued to the chassis inside the hole. It was painted black to make it less visible.

And finally, some stick on rubber feet were applied to the bottom.

I don’t know if it is the lack of AGC, or what, but I really like the sound of this receiver.
