FM1100 repairs

Whilst testing the PRC-351 a few days back, I discovered that my faithful old FM1100 for 4m was having a few issues with bad wiring. Both the audio leads from the speaker connector block were frayed. As I inspected them, one of the audio wire pulled out of the radios main connector!

Ive now had time to strip back the connectors, and with a heck of a lot of jiggling and prodding removed the terminals. Its not possible to open up the crimping on these as they were very well done at the Philips factory, and without any spares, I will have to solder new connections to them in order to rebuild the system.
