    Been watching lots of videos for tips. I'll be using a 1/8" Mohair Roller to apply the adhesive and pros say not to use a J-Roller. Use a spatula because you can apply 8 times more force.

    Being on AK makes for a great crowd and look for more stuff to save from a landfill. Hope to see the results.

    Additionally, I'm curious over the crossover work. Why update the caps at all? Original crossovers were only electrolytic to the super tweeter. I sort of feel you downgraded the caps.

    I LOVE that you kept it walnut, true to the original. I am truly in awe of your dedication to this project. I have a mint pair of the 200W model so if you need any measurements or pics etc let me know.

    I assure you this mod improved the HPM's. It's well documented on this site.

    The hardware showed up and it's a perfect match. Not as easy as you think to find these. 20180714_112102.jpg 20180714_112117.jpg
