The face has already been pulled. Now we have to pull the sub-panel away from the chassis. Remove the tuning string from the small
guide pulleys and place tape around the large pulley on the tuning capacitor so the string does not fall off or move. Remove the tuning
flywheel and move the string out of the way and remove the wires connected to the sub-panel assembly (stereo light, meter  wires,
lighting bar, etc...)
With the sub-panel off we can start
work on the controls and boards.

You can see the toggle switch
used as a replacement for the
original push button by the former
repair tech. I have an original push
button switch that will be
reinstalled

Cleaned up, serviced pots, and audio caps. Each board in the front-end will get this treatment.
