Something like that and it was very weird the way the vent was shaped at the bottom of the box using slots? I talked to the guy who built the boxes. They had their boxes sprayed with car paint to deaden the box and to protect it. Well again good luck. Mr. Jeff

Mr. Jeff: I don't have the missing whizzer cone, but it appears rather easy to make one out of a manilla file folder. The manilla paper appears very similar in stiffness and thickness to the original Moth whizzer paper - it's even a close color match!

I'll most likely be selling these and you are certainly welcome to make me a reasonable, market-value offer. I'll need to take some photos of the driver that has had the whizzer cut off . Please give me a few weeks to get to this, as I have other irons in the fire at present.

Thanks,

Okay thanks. Take your time I am not in a rush. I can tell you years back my drivers were in new cond. and I never plugged them in and I got with shipping 150.00 a pair. So really $120.00 a pair. I have no idea what they are worth? I would contact dave again from planet 10 he might be able to help us out? Mr. Jeff

Here are photos of the other Moth driver. The whizzer has been cut off of it, but I see no reason why one cannot be made out of some manilla file folder stock, it is very similar material. There is also one small area that has been repaired. The foam surround OUTSIDE of the actual roll area (where it bonds to the frame) had a small slit, and previous owner put some glue on it. This should not affect performance in any way, as it is completely outside of the actual suspension.

I will be selling these drivers on EBAY, but will give head's up to people here on DIY if anybody wants them. $100 plus actual shipping cost to your location. Send me a PM.
