Realistic TRC1005 CB27/81 UK FM CB Handheld CB radio - extensive repair

This immaculate looking set from 1984 with not-so-immaculate innards. Someone had removed the side switch/socket panel & all but one wire of the few soldered on were in the wrong place! One of the battery wires also went to a wrong connection & on top of this the protection diode was shorted.

After piecing this back together I was greeted with the usual PCB dry joints between the two sides, which Mr Chippie rectified.
