Onward we go then, y'all!
Moving right along to some details that I imagine nobody will care about but me...painting bottom of SLS and back of RS. My ocd compels me...I'm powerless
Remember the boat plug? See how nice it looks there now with the paint. The bugs that crawl under it will appreciate the view, I'm sure...
And now grills. I staple 'em, not a grill gluer, I guess
Wrap around opposite side pull a little tension in fabric. This is Parts Express's better grill cloth.
Tension, staple, tension, staple, tension, staple around and around till they're like this:
Trim it with razor blade and in this case added the grill clips. FWIW, I broke several of these pegs before I figured out the holes are just too small. I drilled 'em out a smidgen which worked better on the Baltic Birch. Might work ok with what they call for on MDF.
Here's my cut and buff supplies. I shot these with satin lacquer, so not looking for super glossy finish, just want to get smooth and protected. I knock off any overspray with 0000 steel wool and then buff with white scotch brite.
After the scotch brite I put a coat of wax on mostly just for protection. Although it does bring the gloss up a little that will dull back down with time and use.
The block off that I taped in earlier comes out
I let the No Rez cover these holes untill now, keeps crap out...and you know by now I like my No Rez pure...
Crossover goes in for last time
Hooked up the binding post plate
Drivers get installed
And an arty shot, SLS's on bench, one with grill on, one naked, and if you look above you see another Danny design.
I hooked 'em up, turned on the amp, and the magic happened. The whole shop went into a foggy haze... it was surreal
