Picked up this radio really for almost nothing from a junker and am refinishing the cabinet now.
The radio actually works but with a lot of noise so it’ll need some work. I think the cabinet is going to be really nice but the dial cover (glass) it’s plexiglass or just plastic is really scratched and hazy.
Any suggestion on where to buy one or possibly making one?

2mm float glass is the standard size for picture framing and has been for many years. Referred to in the trade as two mill float.
A framing store will cut it for you if you cannot!

You can also pick up crystal clear acrylic aka plexiglass® in 1/8'' ←3mm
Small sheets at Hobby Lobby or ebay.

Tru-Vue (museum) glass - Specialist Invisible Glass.
