You can also get a Grundig 88CA which is the Canadian version and no different than the US version.

Thats [sign in to see URL] can find them on ebay and they usually go for $10 - $30. Don't get the German version due to incorrect faceplate (not show correct) and you cannot plug it in in the [sign in to see URL]. due to different voltage requirements.

If you find one with a maroon case you can paint it with some good quality plastic paint but make sure you prepare the surface properly so the paint will stick and not peel off or scratch easily.

The best paint so far that matches the show radio is Krylon Indoor/Outdoor Gloss spray paint in Almond color.

[sign in to see URL] plastic absorbs paint like a sponge so go easy with the [sign in to see URL] in light coats and let each coating dry fully before the next [sign in to see URL] [sign in to see URL] [sign in to see URL] may take 5-10 coats to get it shiny and [sign in to see URL] let it dry for a whole day before you handle it.

Re: The Radio


Nice piece on the radio Founder Bunny, OA, RMC. I believe I may attempt something similar with the scissors. Perhaps we can persuade the Apostle to publish a complete history of those ]fried eggs he manufactures in abundance.

Re: The Radio


I just finished painting my radio. I sprayed on lots of primer then sanded it. By doing that, it was really easy.

It came out looking really clean and even. Unfortunately, the color I chose is too dark, so I will have to add a couple more coats of a lighter color.

Re: The Radio


And you got a fair bit of competition. 6 bidders is a lot for one of these.

I don't have a place for such a large item, and he says it won't tune to other stations. But, I will bid his initial price and if I get it fine, it not, fine.
