    Sorry, haven't finished my cleanup at the farm yet. Won't be near my parts til late this week. Put a small thin plastic cap on to get them functioning. You can always put something on top of them later for cosmetics when you find something you like. Quite a few companies use double caps anyway.

    Re: 8" dust caps

    im considering having forms made to press CF dustcaps. is there really a market for 8" caps? i figured 3" and 6" would get 90% of speakers on the market. not trying to steel the thread, how much are you willing to spend? i could probably hand form 2 8" cf caps and still be under 50$ a piece like that other place charges.

    i was planning on having lips on them, i hate non-lipped caps. no trouble doing colored weave, just adds to the cost.

    not in person, just pics of them. i can not do 'dry formed' it involves some heat and a press form. mine would be laid like fiberglass with resin. i think i can still get colored resin too though. one of my local supply shops just shut down but there is still one other here in town that sells this type of stuff.

    glossy smooth most probably, colored resin can be used to add tints to the entire piece, or effects in localized areas, like making it look like there is blood oozing around the surface or something if its layered between layes of clear.

    dustcaps, no. but i have been modifing fiberglass and plastic for years. fairings and bumpers, bodykits, most normally.


    let me see what a roll of fabric costs, and rumage around to see if there is anything i can build a mold out of myself.
