when I had one as my Novice rig, back in 1970, it needed a case job.  took a picture and blew it up, back when I had color darkroom access... and used Datak lettering to relabel the panel.  I used two Krylon colors that were spot-on matches from the can for the original paint.

I had these folks re-do my Ranger front panel:

It is a beautiful job.  I think it looks better than original!

Hello Bill,

Hayseedhamfest does panel overlays. Those would probably be a lot cheaper than a complete re-finish job.

If you go with them, I would appreciate hearing how you like the result--I've got a Viking II coming that is likely to need the same thing.

Cheers,

I think W4PNT passed some time ago.
