Black oil wash applied then maybe 75% cotton bud'd off, leaving it looking suitably "used" I think. The rads' got a light grey oil wash too, which was also lightly rubbed off... ooer missus.
This was my first time using oil paints to weather anything and I must say I'm impressed how easy and effective it is. Tiny dob of oil paint, splash of turps thinner in a little pot, stir then brush on. grab a cotton bud and gently remove it until it looks "right". easy peasy oily squeezy.

Willing to separate. Postage calculated on request.
Chord SPA 612 monoblocks. These could end up being a bargain for someone. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/391541663639
Currently £640 for the pair and finishing in 24 hours. Someone in the US has a pair up for sale at $4,495.00
They are listed in the 'Musical Instruments' section under 'pro audio equipment'. My guess is that less people browse this section compared to the 'Home Audio & Hi-FI separates' section which could end up with them finishing cheaper.
If I hadn't already grabbed an amp for my bass drivers I'd be keeping shtum about these and bidding on them myself. 350W in to 8Ohm would go down a treat.
Read the description though, it looks like they'd benefit from a new IEC connector.
Might be of interest to someone.
Glad to hear it's all sorted! My latest build was knackered by a failed Dac board now replaced, and now I have a dud 12v buffer board reg and an intermittently shorting ribbon cable......I've never had any issues before with the boards, cables or regs It still sounds great run with the one souped up board/psus going straight to the Cinemags with no buffer in place
Definite scam, the account will have been hacked by scammers, seen this quite a few times recently with a mass of hi end audio equipment or photography gear all for circa 1000 a piece irrespective of what it is.
The listings will all get pulled in the next day or so, they're just hoping to catch a few people out before this happens.
