Nooooooooo!! I was looking forward to seeing it finished over the weekend, bet you were as well!!
I'm gutted to be honest but there's nothing I can do about it. The speaker grill cloth is late as well 🀷. I guess it's not exactly a good time of year to be ordering stuff that you're in a hurry for. I'll still try get it done before Xmas if I can. I'll just need to do it all at nights after work, not ideal but I've got folk that need to see this finished πŸ˜‚

Yeah get cracking, I've got other threads to watch as well you know! 😝
But seriously, don't rush it! It's worth taking your time with this project :smashin:

No of course not. It's your money. As long as you're happy with the sound as well spend whatever you want to on styling. You would regret it if you didn't as you will be seeing it every day.

I managed to get the same paint I'm using from Screwfix woo hoo, I didn't even realise that they sold it, although I did need to go to two different shops🀷. 48hrs to dry then I can give it a light rub down before the final clear mat top coat. Maybe be done before Xmas after all 🀞

Just two speaker grills to cover with cloth and I'm all done, tomorrow night for that as I'm pooped.
I'm still not allowed to use it until Xmas though seeing as it's actually a pressie from the wife, I can't really be mad though eh lol.

Thanks and Nope🀷🏼, I've no reason to think it won't work though. But no I've not tested it since putting it back together (within the past 30 mins lol) I'll wait until Xmas day now, a few more days won't hurt.

From an earlier post I believe you don't actually know if it worked before you did the work either, right?
