Speaker grilles

Alec Issigonis didn’t listen to the radio, so Minis didn’t have speakers. We’ve corrected that oversight, but the speaker grilles that came with the new speakers are kinda gross and modern.

Why does no-one make lovely gold mesh speaker grilles any more? Because they’re so easy to make yourself that there’s no point? Oh, right.

Perfect first time. (Yeah right. There were one or two test runs.)
