Other sources for covering would be to try a good hardware or arts & crafts
store (Hobby Lobby.)

In addition to Glenn's comments, I'd suggest that after getting the old case
cleaned well, break the surface very lightly with steel wool or a
'ScotchBrite' abrasive pad, to give a decent tooth for the adhesive.

Hi Guys,

Does anyone know if the faux leather contact paper
covering can be found anywhere. I suppose the aluminum
could be painted easlily enough but it seems to me
there would still be a source for this (black)
covering material.

BTW - as the recent posts indicate, there is a new
OMNI C at this QTH and it is just a fabulous rig with
lots of character and charm. It's much like the
Corsair II, it's a rig you really enjoy having in
front of you.

TenTec was quietly manufacturing these unique radios
during a time that I was fully committed to Kenwood
then Icom. Now that amateur radio has changed and I
find myself focused on CW, it sure is great to "find"
these great rigs and at an absolute bargain to boot!

Thanks es 73,
