    If you want original style strips, I can't say this often enough, Midwest Military. Any wood worker can help you out making the boards. I used white oak since it doesn't rot easily.

    Hank had a 610T refurbed (man was it pretty) but it did not fit my factory cutout at all. I think the final answer was an 800 series radio. I'll dig and see if I can find the consensus and edit it back in here. I believe we settled on the 812 due to some work done by Brent. http://p15-d24.com/topic/38627-b3-radio/?do=findComment&comment=459094
