Hey guys, I brought home a nice Radiomarine AR-8506-B from the
Charlotte hamfest.
The main thing wrong with it is the cabinet paint.
The front panel is not bad with it's medium gray paint
and white lettering, but the cabinet is not pretty at all.
It looks like it was originally a lighter gray with a green
tint to it.
Does anyone KNOW what color it was originally?
Should it just be light gray, or what?

2 things I need for it are,
the plug in filter caps that plugged into sockets like tubes
on top of the chassis. Someone has replaced these under the chassis.
I'd like to find original caps to fill the holes where they are missing.

I'd also like to find a shock mount base for it. Someone has replaced
it with ugly black rubber feet.

Thanks a bunch for any help you can provide.
This was a GREAT radio collecting weekend, I brought home 4
new to me radios.
