Hi everyone,

a few of you know that I am a bit of a Kef fanatic. I have finally acquired the long waited KEF 105.1 mark one.

I have got them in a really terrible state, but my restore project finally begins.

When I got them I got them with no wheels, and no crossovers, so not much I could do to hear them. Had all drivers tested and finally something was good.

One of members here named SaSi, offered his kind help in order to help me restore these beauties, and sourced the full crossovers for me. Thanks Kindly SaSi!!!

The veneer on the bass units is gone, and now fully strupped, there is rott to the bottom of the cabinets that I will need to fix, or rebuild the cabinet, but planning to try and fix.

So far thats all, here are some pics:
