    "Big Red" cabinet help

    Hey everyone. I just picked up a big red cabinet that I'm piecing back together. The biggest thing is that mostly everything was missing up by the marquee. There are two locks that hold the marquee swinging door in place, but nothing that the locks would have attached themselves to on the cabinet (just two divots). Can anyone take a picture of their cabinet so I can figure out what I need to do to restore this area?

    Thanks

    If you mean this, you need the 4-slot T-shaped marquee, which is impossible to find, you need 2x MV-ELC/D panel boards in series, a 4-slot mini marquee holder, and an MV-ELA inverter board. And 2x 4" 8-ohm speakers if you don't have those either.

    That is the cabinet. It looks like it has the internals. I got this repro t shaped Marquee. Szabo does great repro art work so I trust this will be great.

    But the area I need clarification on is literally how that metal bracket with the Marquees lock down to the cabinet. There's two locks on the bottom of the swing down door but nothing to attach them to.

    I'll try to get some pics today to clarify.

    I believe it's just 2 screws in the wood, or something ghetto like that. I'm out of town rn otherwise would try to get a pic

    @achmetal for some reason the forum will not let me view the jpg? Not worried about fancy just want something that locks down!!! Can you put on imgur or try reposting?

    Bump. Added picture. I can see there used to be a screw behind the cutout there, is that what's missing? Anyone?

    Yeah pretty sure that's what I have too.

    I'm also a new member from LA who just got a big red that I'm fixing up, so I thought I'd say hello and good luck!
