Well here we go, part three and the little baby amp is ready to rock and roll!

I finished (so to speak) the paint and varnish and we gave her a good trial belting the crap out of the Jaycar bass 8" speaker.

Clear finish over matte black.

I have found that where black trim is required on a timber radio it is best to use matte black, get it nice and smooth with the rest of the timber of the radio, and spray on the clear coat. Gives a really deep black with no overlap bumps.

Letraset

I have been installing a surround system sound using a new Denon surround amp and speakers I already had, including subwoofer. All working very nicely, only need a decent centre now. As part of this have been constructing a switch box to switch the main front speakers between my stereo hifi amp and the Denon. No big deal - a 4PDT on-on switch, a box and a handfull of connectors.

But have been looking for Letraset to label it. Mine also missing in a couple of house moves; can't get it around town including Office Supplies. Looking for alternative labelling now.

I thought Dymocks might have it as they have always been big on stationery, however, no go. Ebay has plenty though.

Thanks for that Brad, but re Ebay, have seen that but a lot is from a vendor who won't post - why not for letraset I don't know. Might end doing that but only need 6 words.
