Hey Sven,

There's just 1 more thing you need to do to complete the step back in time with the silver turtle at your favorite swimming hole, Find a 1980's era outfit to go with it. LOL

Glad that you've been able to bring the silver turtle back to life. Looking forward to seeing some of your Silver and Gold posts now that summer is here.

Finished up this week.
Sports a newer 8" coil with waterproof connector, no longer hardwired

Repaired orig. White's Electronics supplied headphones, there was a short within the orig. coiled cable, now has a new coiled cable with connector. Complete headstrap was replaced with one from my Calrads. Rubber ear cups were in excellent shape, just needed rejuvenating.

Defective circuit board replaced with an identical Silver Sabre one. Some parts changes were made to reduce circuit board height as a copper ground EMI plate was added about 1/8" below the circuit board. New toggle switch and waterproof boot. New waterproof boot seal on Disc. control and new knob.

Just needs a new belt strap and buckle and a straight shaft set-up, otherwise ready to go. Bench test performance better than expected.
