Travis Brown breathed some new life into an old amp by adding a retrofitted display, a motorized volume knob, and improvements to the housing.
Years ago Travis got his hands on an old Ford Probe Audio Amp. He got it working and improved the housing for it. Years later he re-visited the amp and did a few upgrades on it, including a motorized potentiometer for volume control, a new housing, and a new display screen. His website has a great write up on the project.
