I recently purchased a 1950 Arvin AM/FM tube type radio from an antique store. the radio wasn't in too bad condition for its age and after testing it before i bought it, the radio sounded great and everything worked on it (except the FM side, but thats for a later instructable). so i splurged a whole $25 for it and brought it home. the next thing that I decided to do was make this radio have a more updated presentable look rather than the old vanilla color it had, so i went and got some Krylon spay paint because they are known for having good plastic material related paint.
materials i used to do this:
1 roll of masking tape
1 can of Krylon fusion hammered finish (dark grey in color)
1 can of Krylon metallic finish spray paint (bronze w/ metal flakes color)
some toothpaste for polishing
toilet paper for polishing
