Here is a 77DX that was not in too bad of shape it was just painted the wrong color and the chrome 
worn off  on the center band and some one put a cheap replica of a shock mount.
I repainted, re-chromed and replaced the shock mount and windscreens.

Below you can see the original paint in the RCA logo. I was able to keep the original paint when I chromed it.
