Greetings, The radio faceplate on my 81ZX is rubbed bare in places. A new one costs $95.00. Has anyone redone the surface? Enjoy, Lew

When I installed a new digital radio in my 80ZX the old faceplate cut-outs wouldn't fit so I made a new face plate out of 1/4 aircraft plywood and applied walnut veneer with contact cement. A couple of coats of poly urethane and wow, it looks great. I don't see why you couldn't apply any hardwood veneer to the existing plastic faceplate as long as you rought it up a bit with sandpaper. Give it a try. Looks very custom.
