This Pilot radio should be fun restoring, the veneer is peeling on the sides and the zebrawood veneer also peeling, I will order some zebra veneer and get started soon.

OK this pilot is done, the veneer as mentioned was coming off so went ahead and replaced all of it from side along top and down other side. The zebra wood also replaced it as well. The book matched walnut on front was left alone but did patch a small area where the piece was missing. Repaint grill , stain and toned cabinet to where I thought it should be, the cabinet before was way to dark , could not even see the wood grain. Looks much much nicer now, maybe the owner can post it here when its finished being put back in service and sitting in his collection.
