I bought this one from Kijiji and I did restore the chassis changing out all the caps and a few resistors.
and I put in a new eye tube.
The cabinet was very solid but the old lacquer was bad, so I stripped it , applied dark walnut stain and added
Mohawk extra dark walnut toned lacquer on the top and bottom.
The plastic lens was like new, so that was a bonus.
it has the original knobs and grill cloth.
Radio Daze had the decals I needed, which really make the difference.
It came out very good.
I think I have the same one only on mine the dial is slightly different. on mine the dial was so shabby that I recreated it in a graphics program and it worked out OK. Its a nice art deco radio.
this was one of my first restorations may dad did the cabinet and I did the chassis.
As always Dan you make them look like they just came out of the store in the year they were made.
Keep them coming Dan all the very best Rick
