An oil based paint like the rustolwum will take along time to dry. It will get a lot more dust trapped in the surface, along with bugs and all sorts of wierd things. It will be a pain compared toa fast drying laquer.

If the rustoleum is truly a fast drying laquer than you are fine. If it is an slow drying oil based paint then you will have the trouble that I mentioned. So the advice in a nutshell is something that dries fast. ( flashes off in about 5 minutes )

Then check your library for Bob Flexner’s "Understanding Wood Finishing" book on finishing wood. He has written the seminal text on it & it is easier than you think. Much less sanding that you would imagine.
I think the 320 paper, oops, coated abrasive sheet is a bit of overkill, but you have the results that you wanted and that is all that matters! If you are using a finish that is not water based, you can get the #0, #00, #000 & #0000 steel wool to sand; it is cheaper and works great. Not for water based, as the small steel pieces that come off may turn into iron oxide and poo your nice speakers!lemans23 said:
