Over cementing

#1 Post by climbikejk » Tue Dec 11, 2018 10:47 am

I've over cemented my tweeters

I looked through the forums for anything related to "'cement" and how to get rid of excess. I think the closet thing I saw (once you have too much cement, not before cementing) was to use 320 grit sandpaper. True? I tried using a razor blade, which I think could be better because I think sanding could lead to taking off too much and showing discolorations. However, the razor blade method seems to be taking a while...

So sanding?
Dremel?


Thanks

Wet sand with 320, using a sanding block. To make the look uniform sand the entire array face.

I got a little messy gluing my arrays. Just sanded them smooth and spayed them flat black. Look so good I might not put grills on them (some day).
