Smile USSR Selena Vega 215 repair wanted (Kent)

Good afternoon all!

Hope everybody is keeping well during these strange times. I uncovered one of my dad's old sets during lockdown - an 80s-era USSR-made "Selena Vega 215" branded multi-band radio. It's cosmetically great and in working order but could benefit greatly from somebody knowledgeable who's able to repair and work on these beauties!

Problems are:
- Knobs for volume/tone/etc. are all either fuzzy or pretty unresponsive when twisting
- Internals may benefit from changing caps if there's any leakiness going on (not looked inside myself)
- Bulb doesn't work for illuminating bands. From what I understand this uses a rather non-standard bulb which may be impossible to source now, so it could perhaps do with a "warm" coloured LED upgrade?
- anything else that could return it to its former glory and keep my dad happy.

I've attached a pic, also there's some more info I found on here: https://www.radiomuseum.org/r/vega_vega_215_selena.html

My dad loves this radio and I'd love to return it to him fully working as a nice treat.

I potentially have more silimar era radios too which could benefit from an internal look-over and clean-up in the near future too. As you can tell, I'm making the most of this lockdown and uncovering some real gems which I'll share on here.

I'm based in North Kent.

Thank you!
