    Seeburg 222 restoration

    Guys

    New project, I have just imported a 1958 Seeburg 222 jukebox to restore.
    This jukebox plays 160 selections and I believe was the first stereo jukebox.
    It arrived yesterday and I hooked in today tearing it down.
    I have new sideglasses as well as a new 50Hz gear .
    I am on a big learning curve here as this machine needs a lot of work Amp and selector need rebuilding and god knows what else.
    All help is appreciated
    A few photos attached.

    image.jpgimage.jpgimage.jpgimage.jpgA quick update frame has been patched with fiberglass filler and sanded smooth ready for painting.
    Anyone have any good scans of the interior paperwork?
    Removing the anti theft screw from the cash box was a bitch but got there with the use of a dremel
    I have purchased a as new 500W stepdown isolation transformer and still compiling a list of parts required.
    Slow and steady but getting there.
    Hopefully have the box painted in the next few weeks.

    Quick update on what progress has been made, selector has been dismantled cleaned and reassembled after the case had been primed/painted.
    Keyboard has been dismantled and keys polished, I'm yet to decide whether to bleach/whiten the keys.
    I kinda like the vintage look.
