  • Boombox re-paint

    since i'm not building anything rite now and it is slow at work i figured it's time to take apart the boombox and re-paint it . Originally i had all kind of problems finishing this and the Dupli-color rattle can i used has never cured and everything still sticks to it . On top of that i started my own business this year , in the beginning it was really slow so in between appointments i helped a friend in construction do a house re-model and it took a beating ! Paint even got spilled on it . I'm almost embarrassed to show y'all this .... Click image for larger version

                  What are you using as a power source? I have a couple of the NXT micro-amps that are collecting dust so the wheels are turning...

                      I've found that execution of box construction and overall finish quality makes the hivi's look good on anything..... I just wrapped up a set of OS MTM's for a guy at work and they are red baffle/blue carcass and look surprisingly nice.

                      keep rolling bruh, gonna look nice. Take your time on the under coats, sand/paint/sand/paint/sand/paint..... best tool is patience.
                      Builds - C-Killa - Speedsters - LithMTM - Talking Sticks - Pocket Rockets - Khanspires - Dayton RS Center - RS225/28A - Kairos - Adelphos - SEOS TD12X - Dayton 8 - Needles - 871S - eD6c - Overnight Sensations - Tritrix (ported) - Lineup F4 - Stentorians - The Cheapies - Tub Thumpers - Barbells - Tuba HT - Numerous subwoofers - probably missing a few...... :p
