Thanks HBAutomation  :thumbs: Got the hardener on Friday, so this week I will Prime the box and flat it again and then check next week to paint it or maybe over a weekend that it can bake in the sun after the spray work.

So today was the rite day to do some spray work. Decide to make the box black, but with a twist. The 2K Black paint that i used was a bit thicker then the normal one that you get. I Mix it on a ratio of 2.5:1 and some thinners, turn the HPLF spray gun down to 4.5 bar and this what i got.
First set of layers:






And after ....... i lost count of layers but there is a lot!!  :giggle: end results



Close shots. Got that nice spotted looks and feeling.

Hahahaha!! Thanks!! i need to tip it on his side to go sideways through the door.  :giggle: and it's not lite! hahaha!!

Sounds really good, If you run it with a test tone direct from the laptop, it moves a lot of air.  still need to set it properly up with my Marantz amp and just do this take some  :teach: Cost me to reset the amp Saturday night because of the stuff i change. haha!! but it sounds nice!! will do proper setup when i move in to my new house.
