I suppose the "apprêt" was a product for car painting? Was it regular primer or spray putty (mastique is the French word, I believe)?

Also, what do you mean by "médium"? Sorry, it's neither clear to me from the French nor the English version.

Merci,

[B]excuse me I had not translated the text into English ...........
Thats funny because as I was reading this I was thinking, I bet he typed this than put it through a translator, because of the the way the senteces were structured. If your reading our posts the same way, I bet we sound just as horrible to you

Anyways back to the thread at hand. I just had a great idea. Poeple are always wanting that super shiny black glossy paint and when he said painted like a car it reminded me of this place locally that does alot of body kit stuff for cars and the guy usually charges $100 to paint a bumper, wing, whatever...Now the paint is usually so-so for car applications (road debris, wind, weather elements), however in a home theater enviornment, it would last plenty fine. Especially a glossy black with a clear coat. And you could do almost any color feasible (if you wanted!).

Heck even Maaco could probably do this right!

Oh ya you would probably want to fill and smooth the enclosure surface yourself first before taking it somewhere, because as someone previously mentioned wood is porous.
