What a timely thread. I'd love to get my hands on a Marantz 2500 faceplate. Missed my chance by a year or so as I saw one on the bay. I believe that was the last of them. Maybe I'm confusing it with a 2600. Ah, heck forgot which model I saw. Anyways, the work was amazing. Truly from what little I saw I can't imagine the time involved from beginning to end. Must be some serious hours. Hats of to those who do this.
