From the rear. I couldn't remove the bottom part of the case because the compressing grommets were too dry. Not without force, anyway.

It's a shame you can't see its case to fully appreciate how beat up its paint is.

I am a student, father, and metrologist (gauges, not weather), Dungeon Master and typewriter tinkerer extraordinaire! I've only been at collecting and fixing since August 2018, but I already am a more confident person. I have learned a great deal from many of the wonderful resources available on the Internet, and I've met a lot of awesome people in my travels! Hopefully some folks can say the same about me!
