Apply base coat, clear cost and allow to cure. You can then bulk up the "solids" in the clearcoat by allowing the solvent to evaporate a bit and "fleck" with a coarse brush. Cure the finish with some gentle heat. Practice

apply polyurathene using spray gun! Before apply using polyurathene be careful with the quantity of hardner while mixing ět! lowering the air pressure of the spray gun you can create a water drop texture on your speaker enclosure!
