JBL Century L100 Restoration

Here's a pair of JBL speakers that can really use some help.  Follow along as I document this complete restoration from start to finish.

The first step is to unpack the speakers and do a thorough inspection.  I make note of all the cosmetic issues I see.  I hook up the speakers and see if all the drivers work, and note the condition of each driver.  I check the woofers to make sure the cones move freely without making any funny noises.  On this pair of speakers, this process took me 35 minutes, including the time to type up my notes and email them to my customer.  In this email, I also provided my customer with a basic outline of the restoration work that I recommended.

Here's a whole bunch of photos to document the condition of the speakers as they were when they arrived at my shop.

As you can see, I've got my work cut out for me!

My customer has given me the go-ahead to proceed with the restoration, so here we go!
