I have a Zenith 12-S-568 that has just enough wear on the console that it needs a restoration. Does anyone have a recomendation for someone who does restoration in Missouri or Illinois?

Thank you

Hi Reinking,
Another option:
If you are dealing with cabinet restoration only (no electronics) you might consider contacting someone in your area who does professional antique furniture repairs/refinishing. The fundamentals are the same for both radios and other pieces of antique furniture. Most of these are happy to refinish an antique radio console, provided you remove all electronics from the cabinet yourself before turning it over to them. You would need to explain to them that you want the finish done in lacquer, as per the original, which should present no problem to someone in that business. And of course you would want to check out references from some of their previous customers, and if possible see some of their finished work.
