Hallicrafters S-38B Restoration – Part 2

In part 2 of our Hallicrafters S-38B restoration, we will media blast the cabinet and then prep and powder coat it with Black Winkle powder coat from the Eastwood Company.

We show the steps we take to prep the metal after we have media blasted it and how we apply the powder coating.

The process works pretty good this time, but we do have a few blemishes.  We decide to live with them on this restoration and hope we learn some valuable lessons for the next time we use this process.

I think you will agree that at the end of the process we have made considerable improvements to the case of the radio.

Next episode we will try a new process to us on applying the decals to the front of the case.
