Has anyone tried these re-faux kits. https://www.ebay.com/itm/PHILCO-Tube-Ra ... 1438.l2649. I am thinking of getting one for a Philco 37-84. Are they available anyplace else?

Thanks, Bob

I don't think you can by them anywhere else, I heard they were tuff to apply, just take your time and be gentle applying the decal.

I used them only once, on a Philco 42-380. I thought it turned out rather well, and so did the guy who bought it from me.

I'm with Fred on this, I don't think there is anyplace else.

I've had good luck with them. Prepare to take longer than expected as I needed babysit the small bubbles that arise as it cures. Take your time, it won't dry immediately and make sure whatever blade you are using is razor sharp
