Great build.
Thank you (and welcome here)

What remains to do with this build to finish is: painting cabs, wire up second piezo array, and assemble, insert NL4 plate and tophat. So you could add a few hours and work out time totals me thinks. That's my build time though. I've been steady and methodical in this build, so it may not be as fast as it could have been.

The painting will be done along with 2 other T39's and the three W8's I am currently building.
So no, for the moment there is no updates or timing totals.

Seems like he's gone...

Cab 1 is now totally done. I used 3/16" T nuts for my modified module attachment.
edit: initially I was going to use coarse threaded hex head screws. They stripped out the radiata ply putting them in. So went to the T nuts.
Fully painted and all corners on.

As we speak, Cab 2's second coat of Rockard is drying and awaiting a module implant. Then just corners to go and this will be done as well.

Pics to follow.

I've decided these and the extra 2 x T39's will be finished before any further continuation on the 3 x W8's

Ok, both of these cabs are complete as of today.

I was right, about three hours to get to here to finish Cab 2.

I'll let whoever is interested do the addition for time taken.
Please factor in the following for your own build:
I take a car out of the garage, set up tools, do the work, put away tools and then clean up, in each time segment mentioned. So if you can just get into it and only cleanup each day, remove about 15 minutes from each day of building from my time.

There is also a couple of hours involved in fixing my effup, err mistake, as well as doing my method of setting up and attaching the module(s).

I have an end result:

Testing and reconfiguration of my DCX (due to more T39's) in the next few days...
