Default Cleaning the stats

This incolved using Naptha as well as Acetone, Naptha wahed away any oils from the punch that created the panels, Acetone washed away any rsidue. leaving a very nice and easy to spray panel. I know this is not in order, but it is worth it.
> The last two coats were eurothene(poly) i believe.
> the first is from rhino, as a primer, worked very well as yo can handle these with a full charge, no worries. Multiple pics.

Default Putting things together

I am not sure if I posted these, finished snading and getting rid of any residue, such as oil ans things of that nature that would cause problems down the road with the coating sticking to the stat. You can use what you like, mine works very well, hope i have this right, believe i left off at putting things together and had to leave, so here we go, again.

Some more pics
>309 3M 1/16 tape as spacer
>310 getting ready to alighn the panels, just as nerve racking as stetching the giagphram.
>311 Equal sprips , vertical, even spacing and as there are wide, i believe we went with 6" spacing.
>313 Copper tape, i read alot of people use a little. no corner cut here, all the way around, which makes sence, you can loose alot of proper sound if you try and achieve getting the charge from a small area, so go all the way aound and dont think twice.
>315 Charlie ground down that solder joint so flat, instead of rounding the wire, he spread the wire like "Pea **** feather" very flat and alot of surface covered on the copper.
>318 Finished product, ready to go.
I believe there is another pic, but this is it for now. Try again later. Hope i showed enough information, and maybe someone learned a little, thats all it takes, alittle insparation. more to come.

Default zoom in

Take a very close look at the last pic, third, soom in and you will notice that the diagphram condutor and copper tape are almost the same tickness.
feather ther wire instead of twisting like some of my first pics, reason, if you twist, tends to make the wire solid. As you move it, it will break. That happended twice on the build. The flux taveled up the wire and solder will follow.
So :feather" the wire, spread it out in stands. wish i had a pic of that goof up,
Let me try and get some pics, TL's TV stand(fixed)(sotra) and find the sheet that has all my rca connection #'s.
