I've got this dial:

Its supposed to look like the picture here: http://www.radiomuseum.org/r/emerson_81 ... b_120.html
I don't expect I can make it look identical, but a suggestion or two to make it look better would be much appreciated.... I thought about filling it in w/ epoxy putty, but then I came to my senses and decided I didn't think it would be smooth enough to look much better.
Maybe carefully sandpaper the insides so they're smoother, and then gold paint?
