  1. your not alone i dont have or want facebook either and i even don't have a phone.. I grew up with out this stuff and can still live with out it know i still love my tamiya stuff but i have scalled it all down to a zero these days due to the cost i have not brought anything rc related since the top-force evo re-re and can't remember the last time i used one of even touched them apart from dusting them
  2. that red looks like it is backed(base coat) with black. and kudos on using specialist paints i painted one of my trucks useing their paint and cant not fault it tbh the 2k is fantasic you will need to get it sprayed in a day as it will tend to go of in the can after that i would never use tamiya paint again after my first truck i used tamiya paint the paint cracked all over and i can tell you when replaceing a truck shell and all parts it gets expensive at around 1/2 the price of the kit the car is also paint with kustom canz the finish on the truck is as from the can with out the need to sand or polish the 2k coat in any way it lays down that good
  3. i dont mind having a go at them tbh first of spread you fingers over the cone and gentle push done on it and see if you feel/hear any rubbing from the voice coil if thats ok search the size of the replacement foams / or rubber ones if you can get them this is the glue i use...https://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_trksid=p2334524.m570.l1311&_nkw=t7000+black+glue&_sacat=0&LH_TitleDesc=0&_odkw=T7000+Black+Rubber+Surrounds+Repairs+Spare+Foam&_osacat=0 this is for rubber surrounds....https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/402905366964?_trkparms=amclksrc%3DITM%26aid%3D1110006%26algo%3DHOMESPLICE.SIM%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D245061%26meid%3D0ef3ee661b4f4961a39b3bc3bb888b53%26pid%3D101112%26rk%3D2%26rkt%3D12%26sd%3D163606714080%26itm%3D402905366964%26pmt%3D0%26noa%3D1%26pg%3D2047675%26algv%3DDefaultOrganicWebV9BertRefreshRanker%26brand%3DUnbranded&_trksid=p2047675.c101112.m2109 here is the foam surrounds some come with the glue also ....https://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_trksid=p2334524.m570.l1313&_nkw=foam+speaker+surround+repair&_sacat=0&LH_TitleDesc=0&_odkw=foam+Surrounds+Repairs+Spare+Foam&_osacat=0
  4. yeah i know what you mean with the dust cone you can take that of to shim the voice coil to keep it central so it won't rub but you dont need to do that tbh i did the first time but since then i dont bother with that anymore i also watched u-tube video's from the place where i brought my first foams from (springfield speakers repairs) in the U.S.A but i tryed to order the foams for the memorex's bu they wont ship outside the U.S.A anymore and yes the one with the pegs all round it is to keep it down whilst drying as the foam tends to curl up so i found this method i use a great aid but for when its time to glue it on the cone you have to keep pushing it down until it stays flat. i have had glue bleed on my first time but on the 4 i recently did and the ones before that i was lucky with no bleed. the ones you took out will still work and prob sound better than what you have replaced them with but if your happy with the result
  5. tbh i would have re-foamed them its really easy to do infact the hardest part is getting the old foam of the cage and cone i have done a load with my last lot being 4 15" subs and these will be going up for sale soon as i dont need them know even though i was trying to buy these from my mate for 20 years and he finally gave in last year due to the foams and his other half i even said i would give him a pair back and he could put them in his snooker room but i think he dont want to upset the other half i would love to keep them but i already have a pair of realistic mach 2's that i like better shame i aint been on here for a long time as i would have offered to re foam them for you instead of replaceing them
  6. A couple of days ago 5 stands for the use of displaying motors next quest is get motors to display
  7. as for the battery why not try a ext lead for the battery then it can be left in sitchu
  8. what kinda price do you want to pay i have a futaba 4yf 2.4g sport that i brought for my grand hauler and only ever installed the receiver but never used it so as new as i have swoped to my spektrum
  9. ouch.... but i know your pain as i have had 5 of them done in the past quite amazing though when you look at it unless you have to have them cap'd like i had to that is the worst esp with the temp caps they use until the replacement one is made esp if you have a filling on teeth above/below the afending tooth as i had a kind of shock from the temp caps used when i had mine done plus they keep comeing off also. hope all is fine in the end for you
  10. my son booked car show tickets for today as it was a le-mans theme show but when we get there it was on a pub car park with only one le-mans effort their so 5 mins and we was done so we came away but about 5 miles away from their we kept seeing 80's style trucks going past us so i said see if there was a truck show near where we was and yep it was a a car museum so we ended up going their instead while we was their we went to a food van as we had not eaten and we looked at the menu and for a single slice of bacon in a bap it was just under £6 so we said forget that but ended up at the motorway services enjoying a burger kind instead
  11. or was is wasso pair of jugs and was that in bottom that he said that? and your right he was and still is great in my eyes even though he is no longer with us
  12. thats great i do use hi-fi engine alot for specs and info its a great site
  13. i do watch techmoan videos and he has some nice stuff but a repairer he aint and he always says in his vids i have been watching a chap from canada for the past few years now called 12volt vids and i thought he was good until i saw this guy i have a few other stuff to give to him to repair also but he has told me their is a long wait atm but it will be more than worth it plus what he charged me for what he done in the video was really surprising. i tend to only buy vintage hi-fi stuff esp speakers the pots surprised me how bad they was esp as i have cleaned then with servisol spray mind he does say the action of them was good but the pins was what needed doing hit sounds better also know
  14. would love a sansui amp but would not know where to start dont get rid of either of them they will keep appreciating in value
  15. so i have been searching for a repairer for a couple of years know to repair/service my vintage pioneer sx550 amp and a few months back i stumbled upon a video on u-tube and i thought the accent sound familiar so i managed to get in touch with him and it turned out he was local to me. after seeing how clean his work area is and all the machines and oscilloscope's he has that again look new i messaged him and he said i could drop it off to him. he made a video of it witch is great (for me anyway) esp seeing my amp took to pieces and repaired some of the things i see him do just blows my mind like in his other videos he rewinds and power transformer and in my he silver plates the power switch contacts just amazing if that is something that flouts your boat go and take a look at it and some of the other ones he has done i already have the next item witch is a tape deck ready to go to him the link is
