Brmcm15's Custom Sub:
alright i got a 12 spoke basket and Mmats p3.0 motor from my man Usamspman(idk if hes on CACO but i kno hes on CA)
-When i got it from him the paint started to chip off and there was still glue and rubber all over it cool no biggie though...i gotta grinder smile

-so i grinded it down and evened some of the basket up(there was a weird metal blob on it) and peeled some of the paint off

still waiting to get a recone from PSI or Patrick Chandler at Robot Underground
