    I need some help in telling me how to repair a cabinet. I have a Northern Electric model 5400 .The thing was in about 15 pieces. I glued it and body filled it .This is my first attempt at this and I was wondering if you can buy the decal that says Baby Champ. Or can I tape over it and get the paint to match in ok.
    Thanks for any help

    I am not sure if anyone sells the decal so you might need to work from a photo of another set, and make your own decal or have a sign shop help.
    Think I have a new dial pointer like that if you need one.
    The hammerite paint would be a really good match I think , if you look at this link, at the brown, dark blue and deep green. I think if you look into it you’ll find that the bumpy texture and the colors closely resemble the few colors that NE put out in this Era. … bAod0UtZYw

    otherwise now that it’s glued together you can probably treat it like auto body work and use bondo, glazing putty, primer and auto paint. I did one a while ago using basecoat clearcoat and it came out super nice, but the metallic paints do present a bit of a challenge for spraying, make sure to do thin coats and shake the can well.
