Fully painted case on it's way. I will post lots of pics.

I will contact those on the original list soon to see if everyone still wants one at the original group buy price.

Andrew.

Regards spraying inside .....
although the oringinal sleeves were black inside, the texturing from my recollection did not continue fully internally anyway.

Look forward to seeing the end result - what a great effort.
Thanks
Richard

Please give me some credit. I have invested 15000 in this project.

NAIM cases were textured all over. Mine will be the same.


Edit: Posted this when pissed - hence a bit 'tired and emotional'

Well yours might be but my four certainly aren't, neither my 42, 42.5 or either of my Snaps cases are textured inside, the finish is smooth/matt.

I've got a 42.5, a 42, and a 110, none of which are textured on the inside.

Well mine are, just checked them all.

They have to be textured part way at least because the inside is revealed at the front and back and that is textured.

I think that getting the matt finish inside was part of the later case production method used. This is what I will get them to do.

I will look inside my NAIT at work.

In any case (no pun) we are close to getting them done so all of you with bent or scratched cases and those of you wanting a high quality case for your Starfish or HackerNAP amps now have an answer.....

Both sets of answers are correct - I've just looked at two Nait Mk 2, a naxo, and a Nat 01 / PSU. (all 1988-1996 vintage)

The texturing on the inside 'fades out' after about 15-20mm , so that the bit at each end which is visible on the ouside for the first 3-4mm is textured.


Regards to all
Richard

I can't believe that anyone would worry about the internal piece of the case being of non original finish! My main issue was with folks calling the cases "chrome bumper" when there was no chrome on the case.

Flat, please send me two cases to review and I will big them up all over everywhere. seriously, I am after two cases and the main issue is the balance in cost/looks between these cases and the similar hi-fi2000 cases.

Might be a bit of a challenge fitting the HackerNAP in there, with three circuit boards and two transformers.

3 pcb and two traffos is the single channel.

One traffo for front end, other for main board, rectifier/smoother PCB for each traffo and then one more PCB for the main circuit.

Think 135 with two transformers.

Time to tool up for the double-width box.
