I am not sure if this is the correct forum for this question -- this is not exactly cabinet restoration but close.

I am working on a Philco 42-360. I have the chassis out of the cabinet to work on it. As you can see from the attached photos the paint behind the dial plate is quite faded. It looks like it was originally some shade of brown. But what seems odd (to me at least) ... it looks like the paint is some sort of flocking. It has a felt feel to it.

Any ideas of what the original was or how it should be restored.

It is flocking on the ones I've encountered were a deep burgundy.

Thanks ... Deep burgundy makes senses -- it would seem to match the glass dial nicely. Not sure how to flock it it but I guess I will learn. Always something new to learn with these old radios!

You could probably lightly mist it with some burgundy spray paint... not enough to drench it but enough to get some color back into it...
