    It's not paint, mate. It's some kind of hard, matt/satin finish coating. And it's bloody thick, too!

    It's quite hard to get off. If you don't strip it back completely, you end up with very round edges (where the paint covers the previous chamfered edges) that looks pretty naff.

    +1 on patch.
    Actually I sent to a company to sandblast the deck aluminium cabinet and then apply epoxy paint.
    They have mulitple colors to offer and so much grey shades, but never find the exact shade.
    It s quite the same situation for the 1210 colour, but hte colour i found is very closed to the orginal.
    Let me 2 weeks and you will see new pictures from a 1210 I actually restore.

    Whatever it is there has to be a color code for that and probably this method of coating is applied elsewhere too.

    Is this supposed to be the silver color or?
    Can you tell more about the RCA mod? Can the rubber base be taken off keeping the rca "box" intact and mounted in place as it is?

    No, it s not the orgilan silver color. The name of the paint ref. I use for this pair is silver but has nothing to do with the original. THe one i use is more clear. Its also not a satin varnish but shiny.
    For the RCA mod, you can take off and on the rubber base as easily and normal aus you do with cables. Maybe more easy because you dont need to pass the cable trough the hole when you take off and on.. The RCA box is mounted in place of the aluminium 10mm base from where the cables come.
