:thumbsup:

I'm working on my new build and my Profilux is going to be stacked with my white Doser 2.
I just couldn't bear the thought of the old gray/blue color scheme and the shiny new white/silver color scheme sharing the same shelf!
So I got to working on that today.
A few screws removed, some lacquer spray paint and a spare afternoon... now I have a shiny new controller! :D

Hey Doc, I used Rustoleum Lacquer spray paint.
Nothing fancy as far as sanding or anything. Just taped off and then applied several coats.

This makes me want to buy a profilux set. If only that 40% discount at reefapalooza applied store-wide... I would pull the trigger on one right now! :fun2: Of course I have to travel for work right when this [email protected]#$

Spring cleaning sale GHL?:bounce3:

Was the shelf diy? If so, can you share how you build it and what materials? I need one for my Elos stand.
