    This guy somehow hasn't blow up yet. Glue, corrosion, broken binding posts waiting to short out, you name it, it's got it. Serial 3301.
    My main question is; is it worth dealing with? Looks to be +60 components from diodes to jumpers that I'll have to replace. Feet are gone. Side panels are gone. Binding posts are kaput.

    But if it is: what's a good binding post solution that you've seen? Feet seem impossible to find, is there a rack mount kit for the side panels or something?
    It's looking like a 6 month mess at this point.

    You can make your own posts much like those fancy ones.
    There are nice machined aluminum feet for sale cheap on eBay you can buy. Side panels I'm not so sure but you should be able to source them from any of the M amp line.
    Other than that, I'd fix it up just for fun especially since it's not actually blown up.
