Default Paper Cone Gloss

Does anybody know the Hardware Store equivelent to paper speaker cone gloss, or anything that would possibly work as well? I don't want to have to ship only one or two items, but I want to use something like this...
Thanks guys!

You might want to try calling car audio shops in your area. A lot of them carry that stuff, as it's meant to protect your paper drivers from rotting in a car audio environment.

I remember seeing similar (if not the same) stuff in a few car shops in my home town.

Puzzle Kote seems to be a glorified white glue...

...with a slightly different taste

Hi Matt:

I planned on using the spray-on varnish showin in this thread:

Yet Another NSB Thread...

That project has stalled, so I dont know if the varnish serves to mellow-out the 7-ish KHz peak these puppys have, but they DO look nicer.
