I picked up this nice gold dial silvertone radio model 4465 awhile back and now just getting around to showing it off. I'm still working on the chassis but wanted to get chassis back in cabinet to see how it looks. Did a total strip and refinish with a higher gloss level than I normally do, I must say its looks great. The chassis had two mice skeleton's imbedded in the chassis and was rusted, so I had to take apart and bead blast and paint the chassis back to the olive drab color that was the way it was from factory. Its real nice looking and clean , after all those years with that crap on and in the chassis it once again can be placed in the house without the fear of coming on down with something

File comment: Chassis is not finished here in this photo. I do have the shields but not installed. Still needing some wiring and other things to complete.

I have gotten all the electrical finished up now and radio is now back together and will sit next to my other Silvertone gold dial set. Radio play very nicely and looks great.
