You might also do a search through the Hallicrafters archives over the past
thirty months. If it appeared here, it is still there. Unfortunately way too
many people anser in private and that terrific information never gets shared.

Seems to me I've heard of a fixative that is used by people who
collect pinball machines (the back glass sometimes similarly peels
due to age and the heat from the lights). A search through the web
at sites that are involved in Pinball machine collecting might be worthwhile.

(there's one thing that takes  up more room than BA's ... Pinballs!)
