Who did the paint work? I've had great luck with the repair work on stuff like that, but the vehicles were a white minivan bumper and the black car's rear quarter panel. I actually got great results with rattle-cans, but that was about 6 and 15 years ago.

Sounds "ghetto" but it actually worked. Not sure that it would be as good with a metalic color like silver though.

I did all the work myself. It was way more than I had anticipated so it turned out about 95%. Not happy with the color match but with a 17 yr old car color matching is just short of impossible. Really expensive too, couple hundred in supplies. God damn bugs are the worst part. Will have to get them out in a day or so when the clear hardens up.

So I made some progress yesterday and today. One cabinet is done and the second is about half way complete. One would think the second one would be quicker but that has not been the case. I made more mistakes than I care to admit LOL. grin No one will know but me though.


I am still working out a idea for the stands, thinking something along lines of a pipe inside another pipe on a 4 legged stand, like the base of a office chair .

As for the outer finish, I am going to paint with Black Sapphire paint then clear coat. I am thinking of maybe using some different logo's from 80's bands on the sides and fronts in various colors, what do u think? I am not very artsy so I am limited.I think I will get a touch up gun for small stuff.


First cabinet rough finished, now for the tedious part.



Laying out speaker cutouts


Oh yeah something funny I forgot to share, I got the first cabinet all built and started sanding and filling etc. Well I lost track of where the top and the front are LOL . Good thing I took some pics along the way. laugh

My "vote", not that it matters, would be just to paint and clear coat them... no logos. If it goes wrong, it will look really bad. If it goes well, it will just come across as tacky in my opinion. Again, they are yours, so you can do what you want.

yeah I hear ya, just fielding ideas. Speakers have been around a long time and pretty much every design has been tried . Im not the creative type, so I am grabbing at straws smile

I am thinking of using this wood veneer on the tops and sides with a bit right around the drivers.
