Hello, I have a GT radio J-805 I'm missing the knobs and the fabric needs to be replaced, as well as the power cord. The Tubes look like they're in good shape and the body just needs a lil love. I have the instructions and radio station list... I guess I'm looking for some advice, I'd love to restore the radio. I love vintage radios, turntables etc. And this one looks so cool even as is, but if I could fix it - that would be amazing. Do you know what year it was produced? I really don't know much about it. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks! Smile

Hi. Welcome to the forums.The knobs won't be easy to get, and, repro. grill cloth is harder to find.
I have this GE modell, and, can honestly say while a little rough to work on, is a good performer.
Mine has been restored for several months, now. I really enjoy it.
There is alot of rubber wiring in this set that will likely need replacing.
Have you any knowledge of radio restoration? We'd like to know about you... May we see picture os the radio?
