The poor, wretched face of my first Shutter Dial, a Zenith 9S262, was in awful shape.
The rest of the radio was worse. Ordered a decal set from Radio Daze and was very impressed.
The product is first-rate, and the service was excellent and clear instructions were included.
It was packed with great care to prevent it being damaged in the mail.
Getting the decals on the re-finished dial (needs to be clean, no finger oils) wasn't nearly as hard as
I feared and the results are very nice indeed. They've earned a customer in me.

Tip: If you have areas where, once dry, the decal isn't quite sit flat, use a very fine=point
artists brush and fingernail polish remover (acetone) and a steady hand.
Do NOT get it on the white areas. A small amount brushed on the uneven clear areas will
blend them right down to the surface. No need to "scrub;" a gentle brushing is all that's needed.
The "after" photo attached is before I used the acetone.

With the help of friends and "box lots" from Jim Sargent's regular radio auction in Garland, Texas,
The 9S262 chassis is now finished and playing sweetly.

Thank you, Radio Daze, for the excellent product and service.
