Thank you guys! I am extremely happy with the way it turned out and more so of the quality of this box. It's probably the best mid-sized radio I own!

Some better pictures with a real camera...

:lol:  :lol:  :lol: Well, the sad part is, I need a new 920....mine is worn out! So yes....this is my best mid sized radio! 

 

Yeah, that paint is amazing! It's REAL close to the factory paint, but with just a little more POP!

When it came time to look for paint I went to a hobby shop, a craft store and two hardware stores. Apparently they don't sell SILVER paint anymore! The only thing I found were "Metallic" paints. Some of them were fake Chrome, but this one worked. It's Rust-Oleum Bright Coat Metallic Finish.

I used this, it is very close to the original silver with just a touch more sparkle in it.

Thank you guys. This one was an undertaking, but I always loved this model. I have grabbed it off the shelf many times since it's repair and returned it to service.

Holy shite man!

 

That is dedication especially for an 8989 which are common as hell here!!

 

I can do pretty much anything inside a stereo but despite 20 years in the car body repair industry I am nowhere near as patient as you, cleaning polishing & respraying grilles is as far as I go outside of a machine!!

 

Am speechless - & once again proud to be part of a community that loves these stereo's as much as I do :yes: 

 

The results are stunning & a tuning dial plexi should turn up soon - shite, I would buy a scrapper just for the glass!!

 

Do like the 8989's had & sold 3 of them as they seem plentiful here in the UK :-)
