#1 Quad 405-2 with added Snook

Post by Snorbans »

I started on an old battered Quad 405-2 in December last year, so today feel flushed with success as it makes a noise and oscilloscope waves look good.

I originally followed Nicks modification description but for reasons I forget, probably related to the position and effect of C8 described in the Keith Snook mods, I went down that path

The case is pretty tatty and has some holes I'll need to fill in. I can't find a reference to the paint Quad used anywhere so I may spray painting it satin black or another part of me is thinking further investment and getting it powder coated in say orange gloss, as I have no amplifiers in that colour. Glad of anyone's thoughts on the case refurb

Good effort! Rough case, as you say, but nice challenge!

If theres no paint code available perhaps take the case to a paint shop to see if it can be colour matched? Should be able to get a rattle can made up

Regarding the holes in the chassis... Maybe just a blanking plate? If you're good with sheet work, you could cut out and patch as per rust repair in car footwell etc.

Am I good with sheet work, no experience whatsoever...I'm going to just fill them best I can and learn from it.

I have what I hope is a good guide in
