I have an SCR-284 that I am restoring the case on, and I am looking for a source of thin clear sheet plastic to replace the calibration chart covering plastic that has yellowed. Also for one of the dials that has fogged with age.

I purchased my plastic from a local hobby shop which focused on modeling and trains.

McMaster-Carr Supply Co. has a bewildering assortment of plastics, anything you might want.
Excellent company that's been in business over 100 years.

Enter plastics in the search box at upper left and hit ENTER.

No minimum order, and they only charge actual shipping cost.

You might want to check out this thread. U.S. Plastics is also a first rate company. You can get a lot of plastic for 10 bucks. The .20 is what people have been using to make dial covers.
