These went well and the new chassis is coming around next.

Thanx Pete. The reason yours had these ripples is sections pulled loose .
I was able to pull both speaker foils from the silicone without damaging either one.

Perhaps the installer (2008) assumed new foils were already clean before applying silicone and maybe
a good cleaning with acetone would have gotten them further along

I shouldn’t have been able to peel these free so easily.

What a shame. Glad they're in more capable hands now then.

Did I understood it right, you managed loosen old foils intact? And made new ones from scratch? GREAT JOB!

Thinking about this for those with decent panels but bad foam and the possibility of removing them intact to be reused , reformed and reglued again , I was able to remove the Diva panels and also the Graz Scintilla panels rather easily.

Important points would be to take your time , have a spare room with at least a 3 X 7 foot table with saw horses, no pets or birds to land on your panels and no kids to get into the area.

With the idea that if this doesn’t work and you destroy a panel , at least panels are available posted by artm in pg #233 which is fantastic news and decent prices
for those wanting to diy
