Thanks for the tips to watch out for Marion and Rich I will have a look at the GEC regarding a gentle boost but I suspect it's already seen some action before.
So fear not brethren of this site, restoration will be the way forward for this shrub

Is the 14" GEC the one I brought over two years ago? The CRT is a Mazda CME1402, you've got to be careful about reactivating these tubes. The CRT in my BT311 is a bit dim also. It gets brighter with use.

Or indeed a similar product of your choosing...
I got a roll of self adhesive vinyl in carbon fibre effect from eBay a while ago, it looks pretty good, I used it on a torch I made from a baked bean can, and also instead of paint on a 7" lcd monitor I made. The stuff was originally for vinyl wrapping cars, so is quite durable.
