    I kept a tally of how many hours it took and it was about 97 hrs.

    And heres the disc side, my poor little static converter was chewing its pluck out trying to get that 30"disc spinning. It took over 60 secs to get up to speed.

    Fantastic work. Considering the state the old girl was in I suspect there would be a fair bit of satisfaction in this restoration.
    Thanks for taking the time to post.
