Wooden panels for ES components are hard to find. I believe that someone with resources to manufacture them in China could turn a nice profit providing them to Sony ES enthusiasts.

Here is what I have in mind.

Creating cocobolo veneered side panels of the exact dimensions is  no difficult task. If they are offered for let say $50 a pair with free shipping, several thousand could be sold easily. Some kind of trade mark should be used to distinguish them to homebrew jobs.

I am looking for two sets for TCK-950ES, one set for TA-P9000ES  and one set that could be used on XA5400ES. I am positive that many Sony Es enthusiasts would jump at the opportunity of group sale if it is available.

Amy thoughts ?

Yeah, those panels are very hard to find. Many people removed them and then lost them, or some are just in poor shape. I wish there was a source for these, but they would have to look completly stock and fit the same as the OEM ones. That may be hard to do. I have a small collection of panels I picked up, but are not really too useful for my needs at the moment.

I completely agree to what you are saying.I was searching for these panels for past few months and finally got them after a hard search of 5 months.

My friend Stuart who is on the Sony ES facebook group has been attempting to recreate these - I believe he has found a 3D printing firm who can recreate the plastic washers (which without these, these are merely planks of would which can not be installed properly.)

When I collect my TA-N80ES on Sunday, I am going to measure the side cheeks so that these can be added to the list of what the supplier needs to price up.
