Willamette20 at the 'Sonic' Stage

Willamette20 went to the airport with me Friday and I found a nice old Sonic Drive in Auto Tray in the junque pile there.  In the machine shop we fashioned it into a simple enclosure for the rig.   I also found a nice piece of aluminum from a wrecked Piper Cherokee 140 that will serve as the top portion of the clam shell enclosure.  The knobs and feet are added and it is starting to look more like a radio now.

Monday went to the shop at the airport again and added a few more bits to the Rig.
