Grado HF2 Make Over - Page 4

post #46 of 50

The letters are almost gone on both cups. I dont know how they were made but it looks like a bad pressing. The left cup has a ruff feeling to it like it wasnt sanded before the pressing. Its hard to explain and hard to get a good image of the issue.

 

I think what I might need to do is strip the anodized layer off, buff the cups, paint and get some sort scratch on lettering. Then a clear coat finish to finish it off.

AH.... you can kind of see the lettering on the pictures but I assumed that was just glare. What I'm saying is if you do this, then your neighbor powder coats them you will be able to see a difference thus see the lettering.

i would just sand them till they are cosmetically perfect then take them to someone to anodize them and have them do it jet black you can get it done cheaply if you call around to local bike places they should be able to get you in contact with someone grados are crappy quality and i wouldn't put there name on my fixed up headphones anyways.

I was going to go black with them. I still need to get more info from my neighbor. I told him about getting them reanodized and he said he has a few things that need to be done also. But a free power coat sounds better. Aout the lettering, I only want the text back on it to not totally loose my ass on a resale. Looking to move up to the lcd2 one day.

I ordered some fostex to play with and when they get here I will be able to I can take these apart again to hand over to my neighbor.
