    Default Where's the baffle video?

    Any chance this is still available? The videos on the original link no longer exists.

    I would go with a whole saw first and just drill the inner part of the baffle out first. It will deepen the note and it still looks like you have never done anything. I'm not sure how to get that particular video back, but maybe someone can chime in.

    Thank you. In fact, quite a few of the original links are now not working. I've just bought my first 9 so an update for this thread would be VERY useful! A fine bottle of New Zealand wine to the first to offer to update it!

    Look at this one.



    Just a note he also drilled the outer back plate with 8 holes. Also one thing that he did not say to do, would be to shoot a little high temp black paint into the pipes to lightly coat the raw metal that was just exposed to keep it from rusting.

    I also just updated the link on the first page.

    Seems to be quite a few new members on here now. No new great inexpensive mods in the past 4 years?
    Also if any of the links need to be updates or a better source is found please post it up, so I can edit the first post.

    Quite a few of these links are dead. As they were linked to DLP, which at the time was the owner and sponsor of the site. I will slowly update them. But if you find the best price on any of the links, post it up and what it is for and I will edit my first post.

    Here's a link to the PARTS manual. This is NOT the service manual, but if you need parts or even if you just need an exploded diagram to help you figure something out it may help
