Funny thing is ...  UPS did not demand that they get to keep the receiver.  Don't know why, but I'm not going to argue about it.

Yep that is right, I surrendered a nice 75A4 because the cabinet was dented, it was either that or no refund for my purchase insurance.  Rob K1DFT

I am surprised that UPS did not take the damaged item from you.  The USPS
retains possession of the item when they pay an insurance claim.  Ask me how
I know.

Well, looks like there may be a good ending to the HA350 saga after all.
After informing UPS that I intended to file suit against them this week for
the damaged receiver and their refusal to respond to the insurance claim, I
got a call yesterday informing me that they would be sending me a check in
the next 7 to 10 days.  I'll use it to repay the buyer.  Meanwhile, I end up
with the damaged receiver which he already paid me for.
SO...  I decided to just part it out.  I have too many other projects to
work on.  SO, I have received inquiries from several of about parts for your
own 350s.  However, I will first offer it up to anyone who wants a good
winter restoration project.  The damage is largely to the cabinet.  The
front panel is still in good shape, and from what I can see, there is no
major damage to the circuitry, just some audio problems which may or may not
be a tube failure now.
If anyone is interested in taking it and restoring it, I will make a good
deal.  I'm not looking to make a lot of money because both I and the buyer
have been compensated.
If there's no response before the weekend, I will go ahead and part it out
and contact those who asked about components.  Parting it out could also
give me a good power transformer for a power supply for other projects like
converters, etc.
