Default final 80 repair

I have a small Final 80 element that got broken one year ago. Now i was trying to pull the device apart and start repairing it on my own. Now since Final doesnt give any support on this element i am looking into making my own membrame.. I am a total newbe for this matters. so i am going to learn alot with this small speaker. Most of the stuff will be trial and error. but first of all i am looking for an address where i can buy the mylar. and second what will be the best way of coating the membrame. I look on the forum. and saw several things with glue and things like that. but what makes me curious if i start to coat the membrame with some glue or it. wont that make the membrame to stiff and or too hard. ??

any suggestions are very welcome

Default MY Audio Design....

I only just noticed the links that I posted are the same. Sorry but when I coppied the specific page that I wanted to I only got the main page each time and I did not notice, Mats has info in DIY supplies such as film adhesive and diaphragm coating. You will have to sort through the site to find them but they are there.
