Got the damaged spot cleaned up, not perfect, but noticable without really looking.
I also coated the black portions in a few layers of shellac to protect the latex paint. So they're both be ready for their lacquer clear coats!
As mentioned in a previous post, i was considering going with Danny's Copper caps for them tweeter, circuit, but it looks like there aren't any left, so I decide to get a pair of Miflex copper caps instead. They measure less 0.5% off of the mark, and are perfectly matched, which is about as "perfect" as you can get! (Not to mention they're currently 25% off!
It'll mean some extra burn in time, but considering the strong reviews of Miflex copper caps, I'm excited to see how these all come together, once the kits are finally ready to ship!
