    This Westinghouse 981 that I am restoring has a metal plate that the dial face mounts to. I also has several metal mounting supports riveted to the back of this mounting plate. As the dial is transparent, the mounting plate was originally flocked to make a nice, rich looking baking to the dial. That flocking was in poor shape and must be replaced. I have never done this technique before but there was a couple of sites on the web that explained it well. My problem, though, is finding good quality flocking material. Michaels had the colour I was looking for but the powder clumps together as if it was magnetic! Tough to get a nice thin appearance as a result. The staff there said there are higher quality products out there but I cannot find any.

    Has anyone done this technique on a radio? Any suggestions? ❓
