    Prepping fiberglass and polymer parts for paint

    Clean clean clean. Gotta keep stuff clean, gotta clean stuff before you start. The polymer stuff has a release agent that needs to be cleaned off with a solvent based cleaner and the fiberglass parts could as well. Surface preparation. Gotta make sure all surfaces have a tooth, scratches...

    help with how to prep inner fairing.

    Use grey scotch bright pads for surface preparation. These have just enough grit to abrade but not so aggressive to scratch to deep. Scuff every inch of the surface to paint making sure it is fully scuffed and dull. Stay away from solvent cleaners. I have found when using them, they create...

    Focal vs Hertz

    Sony does have the easiest steering wheel interface. The Tune Tray thing is nice too. no stuff on the bars. I am a bit of a purist on the bass side of things. Subs need controlled enclosures to perform correct, that is why I build enclosures into my bags, ported out the bottom. You will be...

    Focal vs Hertz

    Heavy, I predominantly use the DSX models, but the sound engine is the same in both units so you will get good sound from the start. Look at the DSX-S310. It is a tune tray model with the bluetooth pairing as well...
