    Posted: 17 September 2017 at 10:24pm
I just picked up another HH 4x12 speaker. Somebody at some point has painted something on the front grille. Then someone else presumably has sprayed over the top of that with silver paint.
Needless to say it looks a mess and I want to restore it back to original. I've a feeling any attempts to strip off the paint will end up destroying it, so I need to replace the grille mesh. it's the usual black plastic mesh stuff they used on all their speakers. However I can't seem to find any on the internet. Anybody know if this is still available from anywhere?

Try MAJ Electronic at Kingswinford---but beware, Mick has an amazing sense of humour--I have known him for over forty years and he still cracks me up--We are both founder members of the "Grumpy Old Gits Club"

Doesn't show any on the spares area of his website. May have to go with something different.

Yes it's plastic. Would have been easier if it were metal, got access to a stripping tank!

As you can see it doesn't look too good at the moment and needs putting back to original.

I'm sure Terralec used to sell something similar to what you need. Other than that I wonder if something not too aggressive like acetone would shift the paint or as a last resort, spray over it with a satin black rattle can?    

 Edit; they still sell the stuff I'm thinking of but it's only 2' wide;

That's the stuff! and by happy coincidence 610mm is the exact width that it needs
I'll get some ordered up as soon as my bank account is unfrozen. Discovered today someone has somehow stolen my card details, and has been buying things and setting up standing orders!

Thanks NJW I owe you a beer
