Default Where to find repair kits for Lowther PM2C?

The foam edges of my PM2c's are old and now breaking. Is DIY repair even an option, and where do I find the help for that?

The drivers are "new" unused in box but quite old. Paper cones are mint condition and I guess the engines are mint also.

Have a nice day all.

If you accept some changes in their performance, nominal 8" foam or cloth surround replacement kits should be widely available on the market (web stores).

OTOH, Lowther claims their foam surround is special, ultra light and thin. If replaced by other kits, you'll loose the 'original' Lowther's sound. If you'd like to keep the 'original', buy the replacement cone kit directly from Lowther is the only way. The cone kit consists of frame, cone and voice coil.

why not contact Lowther directly for quote on "restoration" - it might not be as dear as you fear, and if you don't keep them, resale value would probably be higher than if repaired DIY

You're geographically close enough that shipping costs / duties etc would likely not be exorbitant?
