Listed as non working but did power up. Well the good news was upon plugging it in the tape motor was running permanently so at least that was working. No radio however and volume was permanently loud even with the volume turned right down.
The first thing was to get it all running properly so i rotated the flywheel until the heads reset and this solved the motor running, i then cracked on with belts, fresh lube and a clean. Deck was working fine.
Volume turned out to be bad solder joint although it was a pain in the ass to get to with the tuner board stacked on top. Radio i fixed kinda of by accident as i noticed tapping the chip made it come on, i have no idea what joint was bad but i did them all on the chip and fm was now fine.
Cosmetic wise i have resprayed the grill BMW sapphire black with a couple of clear coats.
All i need to do now is order a kit to refoam the speakers including the center passive. It was also missing a pause key, and several knobs and switch covers, if anybody has any spare i would be grateful.
Here she is after some work:
