I'm about to start on a pair of fusion 8s and is love to see some final pictures. I'm considering the same finish but it looks labor intensive smile.gif

yeah definitely very labor intensive. After this really dry winter the "cracks" where the wood joins each other seems to have made little ridges. So there's a few lines on the finish now, I'm going to try to fix it this summer. The nice thing about this black paint I used is that technically it never fully cures, so when you spray more on it it will basically melt into itself and form a new full layer. Here's some pictures I took with my phone. They came out a weird blue tinge. The second picture half the speaker is covered in dust. The last picture you can see the line that developed over the winter.

Nice grill, how did you attach it? Magnets or otherwise?

post 85 has some pictures of the grill construction. I have 4 neodymium magnets embedded in the front of the speaker, and the frame has 4 metal L brackets on the corners that stick to the magnets

Did you simply use a thick drill bit to get a hole for the magnets in the baffle?

Ouch on that line. I've had MDF telegraph through veneer and have seen it even in duratex (someone else's speaker). How do you plan on getting rid of it? Just spray more on or sand it out first.

yeah probably just lightly sand it with some high grit to get rid of the line and the wax on it and then re-coat and then re-wax
