I can confirm this. My Avant had about 5 or 6 non-working tracks on the
rear demister. I tried to fix these with some ten-year-old silver paint.
The result was still 5 or 6 non-working tracks, and loads of interference
on FM. Because the paint was so old, the silver had come out of solution,
and the tiny amount that I did get onto the tracks was enough to cause some
kind of arcing, but no heat.
I have just bought some new silver paint, but have not had time to put it on
