360/65 Console 

These photos were taken on Sat May 27 2006 to document the condition for an ebay sale.

I located a replacement gray button cap from a System 3 this weekend and have now filled the gap with it.

The only major damage is several of the studs holding the light panel to the frame have poped on the inside makeing the upper left side of the front light panel is loose. It needs to be secured in place from the back. I left it pushed out a bit in this closeup so you can see the extent of the dammage. A few lamps were pushed in at the same time . Most of the origional lights bulbs were lost in a prevoius move. But it was this last move when it fell over in its old crate it was the sudden stop that poped the stud. Even though I had framed and braced it to protect the switches, the inertia involved with the sudden stop poped a few of the mounting studs from the back of the panel on the inside. I have removed one of the studs and included it in this photo.

This closeup of the wire loom shows how little dust has collected in the last 25+ years. It has been stored in a climate controled enviroment and never just left in the garage to rust.

It should be noted that it has never been cleaned or tuched by any solvents on either the front or back.

This full back image shows the ribbon cables to the lamps and the wire loom to the switches was cut off back inside the cpu so there is about a foot of wire loom and ribbon cables comming out the back. I had planned to connect it to a sequencer box.

The two missing knobs on the side can be seen in this photo. Also lost in a move.  The open crate it was shipped in last time did little to contain the parts that came off due to inertia.

This photo shows the two origional and one replacement dial I found. The missing button top has been replaced by a gray button plug and can be seen in the later photo.

360/65 saved from the ovens!

This photo was taken before I rearranged the buttons in an attempt to determine which one was missing and found the replacement dial.
