    Where is a good source for the hardware to build yer own Cabs.
    like the ball corners and metal trim you see on the RR boogie cabs..

    What finishes work well?

    I used Steel sound above for plastic corners.
    They have recently dropped a lot of products that I liked.
    EDIT: I receved an email from them that they were only TOS on some items for 2 weeks, so they werent listed on
    the site. I particularly wanted the 1/4" locking jack. It fits
    nicely in a 13/64" hole in 3/4" cab material, with no cup
    needed. A red sliding pin locks the plug in so it won't
    disconnect under fire. I also bought a dandy Mic boom stand
    made in China for 14.99, same one locally in store is 49.99

    I also used
    for some odd sized ports ( Formerly Umbra ), this is a good site.
    They have plastic corner molding, good strap handles , L-pad
    mounting cups, they will also fold custom metal grills for you
    to order. The also have metal edging and a variety of handles, dolly handles etc.

    I have used
    for stuff like rubber feet, acoustic foam, l-pads, mounting cups, caps, inductors, T-nuts and so forth.

    Also check US Speaker for odds and ends.

    Happy building.
