mods to ampex 600?

I picked up an ampex 600 pre (no tape deck) in hopes of using it as an insert for some "pleasantly" crunchy surf/garage rock vocals. I've seen there are a number of mods out there for this pre to lower the noise and sweeten the tone for when you do crunch it up, a fellow member used to provide this service:

I don't think I need anything major, it's been recently serviced so it's functioning well (except the meter apparently), anyone who would be willing to tackle some of these for a reasonable price? Mostly to balance the output, and add an output transformer, maybe remove some of the tape deck circuit  and whatever helps with hum.
