This Rockola 460 juke box was brought to us in horrible condition. The top glass was replaced with clear plate glass that just looked ugly. The customer had a tight budget and asked (just get it working, don't care how it looks". Well we just had to spruce it up a little. Call it stubbornness on our part. The first few pictures show the end result, the rest show the scary parts we worked on. Every mechanical part on this thing needed attention.
