Northern Electric R5430 Console
When I first got a hold of this console it was in pretty rough shape. A lot of pulled wires, and disconnected parts. It had quite a bit of damage internally from mice who had nested in the chassis. Many of the wires had been chewed and lost insulation. Cosmetically it was quite a sight, with nicks, chips, and pen markings.
I ended up completely disassembling it, which among other things, allowed me to send the chassis and front panel out to be powder coated. The finished version has individual direct outs on each channel, so that it can be used as a front end for tracking.
