Help liberating grado drivers

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Howdy all -

 

Finally... I have time to install some custom cups from Martin!!

 

SR60's have Mahogany mushrooms

SR225's have Bocote mushrooms

 

Both had partially liberated drivers... I ran into some difficulties

fully liberating the SR60's (which are practice for the SR225's)

 

Ugh.. these videos make this operation seem simple

Where I ran into trouble was after using the file to cut the

plastic housing.  In both these videos the plastic housing

ring separates from the driver quite easily.  Mine did NOT.

 

What ended up happening is the driver separates quite

easily from the plastic... but without the plastic grill cover.

The grill cover remains firmly attached to the housing and

is a complete bear to separate.  I don't see glue or anything

to indicate that these two pieces were ever meant to be

separated.

 

I managed to get one of the plastic grill covers free from the

housing without too much damage... but the other is a complete

bear and is already damaged quite badly.

 

If the 60's were so difficult, I'm really concerned about how this

will go with the more expensive 225's.

 

ANY advice or tips on how to complete this procedure would be

GREATLY appreciated!! I hate working with plastic arrghh!!

 

Anyone else have this issue?  Will the 225's be easier than

the 60's?

 

Thanks for your time!

60's pieced together ok

 

225's went much smoother

 

Made 4 cuts in all the slots with the triangle file... then jammed a jewlers screwdriver

into the gap

 

these puppies are gonna be sweeeeeet

 

I've never been foolish enough to mistake my work for quality anyway!
