1979 Fender Twin (very slow) restoration

I'll be doing this restoration slowly over the fall/winter.

These are the pre-resto pics. The photos do not convey the smell. This amp has been in a LOT of smoky bars.

First step in the resto - I ordered a vintage spec footswitch on Amazon. Should be here this week.

I have most of the capacitors and vacuum tubes. Plus the parts bin will have anything else that needs doing - e.g. the "power" switch is missing... amp goes straight to standby when you plug it in.
