I recently purchased a set of Beolab 4000’s off ebay for parts as my black ones are beginning to get a bit flakey – but that might actually be the sonos connect they are connected to is a bit flakey.
Anyway they arrived looking a bit worse for wear, but are mk II’s and in good operational condition.
The cloth needs re-doing as they all do. I’m thinking of going a bit more herringbone or very tightly textured on that.
The problem this post is actually about is the paint. Its pretty scratched up, and dinged in a few spots. How do I repaint it? I have an airbrush to use on my 3d prints, but have not done aluminum. If I remember correctly, aluminium doesn’t like to be painted.
When I have painted aluminum I’ve used a self-etching primer. However, you obviously are going to need to remove the old paint first which may need to be sanded. Given the dings, that’s probably required along with a filler If you have a paint booth for your air sprayer that’s how I’d try. Nice DIY project if you take your time.
