Took all day to get the capacitor holders finished and I had help!

The gold bayonet plugs are 5mm & come from the model car hobby fraternity, the socket will be glued into the plexiglass holder & the tweeter + will be plugged in, in series with the speaker terminal.

The board the capacitor holder is sitting on is my test spray piece, I sprayed a coat of Mirotone Satin water based lacquer over the automotive acrylic colour & it appears to be fine, it really helps with the metallic finish shine when in the sun, I'll have to get a couple of well placed halogen spotlights for effect

I beat you can't guess what the little hexagon pieces of wood are for.

Thanks for the encouragement, it helps when the going get toughs and when I'm disappearing up my a#se

You'll notice Ive only showed you one of the capacitor holders

The hexagonal pieces of wood are to cover up the holes at the top of each leg.

Have a great New Year

Thanks guy's, in Australia it's " Blow warm air up you ar#e" I think I like the feather better

It's been a very hard day at the office! After I put the primer (blue paint) on, and before I put the finish coat on the boxes I made sure they would fit together, guess what, they don't want to go together even though there is no extra paint where they join. I spent hours getting the bass driver box into one of the outer boxes. I assume it's weather related, it's a lot hotter & more humid than when I did them originally. In the end I put the bass box in front of the air conditioner for an hour or so & that did the trick, of course there is the possibility the box may expand & break the outer box.

Anyway tomorrows another day.

Number 2 is almost done, I still have to make the grill covers & small covers for where the wires are terminated on the mid & tweeter.

If you look closely you'll see a couple of extra holes that I mistakenly drilled long ago, still haven't decided what to do about them.
