I am impatient to get on with the gluing up, however the advancing years have happily brought reserves of patience I was certainly not in touch with as a younger man. Preparation, preparation! I sanded down all the flat surfaces today, using 80G, then 120G – the nooks and crannies in the completed woofer boxes make this nigh impossible after assembly.
I was pleased that I remembered to drill holes in the upper V frame to take the upper woofer wires through to the rear.
Last job of the day was spot priming various surface imperfections (and my unintentional through-holes) prior to filling tomorrow. I have decided to make life easy for myself by going the acrylic route, and I’m using Bedec grey primer. I’ve also bought tins of Bedec matt black and satin black top coat as I don’t know which will look best – I can use the same stuff for the tweeter baffles later.
