Default Answer needed ASAP - reconing

Okay, I finally got started on reconing my sub. I got everything stripped, sanded, old lead tinsels are taken off. I notice my shims over lap a little bit...is this fine, or should I cut one a little shorter. Thank you for the fast response.

Im no expert, and Ive only reconed 2 subs, but I made sure to not let that happen. I was worried it would throw something off...

PS, I used index cards long ways (vertically, standing up) and cut them to fit.

Yeah, I'm retarded. I put the shims in the wrong way, standing up...they're suppose to be sitting sideways.

Do the shims need to be very snug in the motor..because I have two shims and I don't know if I'm suppose to use both...

I would try and get it snug or even tight because if there is any loosness in it you can have an off centered coil.

you want the shims tight and you want them in there in a uniform fashion.remember that the shims are keeping the coil centered in the gap.you will need to stack them just do it the same all the way around the coil

To give the goop time to dry. I've had my subs done since yesterday. I don't feel like putting em in too soon. Not to mention that I don't have any speaker wire laying around for them -.-'
