performing some hopeful reforming currently...
The chassis should just come away from the face. Mine has the faceplate, but its just a thin metal thing that would have glued to the cabinet originally. Remove the knobs first and it should slide down and out.
Pull the knobs and lift off the faceplate. There may be a retaining cleat along the bottom edge on top. If so, Undo the screws there, and the chassis screws, then lift it out of the cabinet after you've unhooked all RCA's and antenna leads. .
This faceplate is different from all the other Fishers I've come across. It is paper thin, and glued to cabinet. No screws. I haven't pulled the chassis yet but I think I am going to try to leave the faceplate where it is at. this faceplate reminds me of the thin copper Maggie pre's of the late fifties.
yeah its a thin sheet of aluminum with the printing and such. Its not the usual extruded thick panel thing like the rest used.
Ok. The DIP and Phil are set up different from the Electra, Futura, Ambassador with regards to the top lid. It should drop out the bottom with removal of the chassis screws.
I've been curious for a while, at just what exactly "fruitwood" is.
I have a Coronet and now this Diplomat that are described/marketed as "fruitwood".
OK, so what is it? Fruitwood can be just the color of finish, and/or the type of wood. It can be cherry, apple, pear, plum or even crabapple.
I also found this:
Separate names with a comma.
