Not a massive amount of work done this weekend due to bad weather... awful for painting when there's damp in the air.
however... crap weather is great for keeping up your attention to detail. As I want this radio to look not only great... but NEW.... nothing escapes treatment.
The channel display filter was very, very scratched. I was worried it was beyond restoration, but I've managed to do it.
One of the popular myths you hear about scratches on plastic is that you can use T-Cut. You can NOT use T-Cut on soft plastics like this if you wish to retain pure, optical clarity (unless you follow it up with much lighter polishing compounds). T-Cut (the clue is in the name) is a cutting compound, and far to coarse to be used on plastics like this. If you use T-Cut, it may appear to be clear of scratches, but it will appear misty in appearance when light is shined through, and reflection from a point light-source will reveal many swirls and micro scratches.
You need a much kinder polish than T-Cut.
I use this with good results.
Here are the results: Literally as new.
