Nice work Rodney. I did something similar with a 50s HMV tube radio. LIke yours it is rather quiet, but a Behringer preamp booster gets the volume up although it looks completely out of keeping with the 50s amp.

This isn't the Arvin radio that is in your picture gallery is it? If not, love to see what it looks like when assembled.
