polishing a turd - LOL

Recommended Posts

made some tri-grills for the beaters.  Won't fully restore them till Winter.

Looking OK for disguising a turd - 🤪

...the cane does weird things to the camera

I wish I had them over at my place... Turn them into magnificent 'beat boxes'!

 

Here in Europe, a 'turd' like that is worth a lot of money...

Hey Rick :)
Been well, thanks Buddy!  Took a few years away from the LS restoration scene to build my Hot Rod.  I am back baby!!!  LOL  -  Picked up a couple pairs of LS for great deal.  One pair I traded my RF-7's for.  That pair already sold to a VERY happy buyer and new forum member @RandyR.   The other pair, pictured above are slated for full restoration and keepers.  Had to drive a couple hours but got a great deal on them.  Won't start restoration till Hot Rod season is over.  Fancy assed La Bella's soon around the corner... 🤪

My problem is I have zero shop space. While my wife worked a shift different than mine I would make a mess and clean up before she got home.

That was the only pair that scared ya! I don't mind bondo and duratex. You go for the beautiful wood stain. Both have their place. As i have said before: 'You do purdy"! 

I already had beautiful Belles in my living room. These became road warriors. They ride again next weekend. This time with a twist. I'll clue you in if it all works out. @codewritinfool assures me that it will.

You know, in the hot-rodding world there is the recently popular trend known as the "rat rod". Should there be a similar trend in loudspeakers, the "turdspeaker"?
