I've been sat meticulously cleaning up this battered old radio.    Unfortunately, much of the "chrome" is coming away from the plastic.   Any suggestions on how I could  renew this or generally smarten up this radio?   I was wondering about using some kind of enamel paint.   I'm not desperate to do this but thought it might be a nice lockdown project as long as it doesn't get overly expensive or complicated.

Wrap it with the film they use on cars.

I was thinking of something along those lines.

A good suggestion, Alan.👍

I still have a black fronted version of this radio. Good luck with the restoration, Chris.👍

I've ordered some of this in silver Mirror Chrome Vinyl Wrap (Air/Bubble free) All Colours All Sizes | eBay

If I was to cover the whole front bezel, I wonder if I could get some replacement transfer stickers for the logos.

I'm also looking to replace the sticky S meter with one of these Uniden Superstar Cobra Export Signal Meter | eBay .   It looks like it will fit, but there are no dimensions on the listing.  I've sent the seller a message.
