I applied a wood furniture cleaner (no polish like most) & Howards Restore-A-Finish, Then applied Howards Feed-N-Wax. Then I placed a new grill cloth that is close to original pattern. Found out the radio was rebuilt- go figure. Top picture is original finish and bottom is restored.

Excellent. Most remarkable that those chems could make such a difference. I have never used them as I don't think I can buy them over here.
