It's about time to start another build thread, because the pictures are piling up..
I had this idea over a year ago when I got my first Lasonic TRC-931, and am now just making it happen!
I scored 2 separate BIN deals with absolutely NO DESCRIPTION, listed as "parts or not working" but luckily they both were in working condition.. Sure.. I could've made one perfect box out of the two, but where is the fun in that? To have a minty 931 like everyone else..?
I gotta be different, so time to start customizing!!
Here are the working donors for this project.. both powered on, but one plays radio and one plays tapes, but AUX-IN works on both..

Welded the top cap(s) to the woofer bottom and shortened the handle 8"
