I've had a Hallicrafters T-54 for years.... In the steel cabinet... Never did anything with it.... The rubber bushing around the face of the CRT is in good shape... It kind-of looks like there could have been a safety shield fitted into the bushing.... Yes/No ??? Plastic or glass. ??? Flat or convex. ???

Comments welcome...

Yes, just ordinary Plexiglas which will be super easy to reproduce. Just be sure to get the right thickness so it fit's snug.

The one in my model 505 is vinyl I believe. Very soft and flexible.

the Size of that plastic Cover is 1.5mm thick and 165.1mm or 6.5" diameter
of the 3 T54's I have only one has the Safety Cover and its in poor shape so I never put it back on
eventually I will get some made
I am not sure what it's made of, but it is flexible, I think anything clear would work
