So as some of you know I junked picked some La Scala's. As bad as it may be to some, I will make them as perfect as I can because it's just who I am. So I started to work on the first speaker and got the hardware out. Marked and recorded everything. So mine is the BR model, so it seems I am pretty good (safe) with a finish I pick. I have been looking at many models of these and it seems so many paint them Band Black, Sorry just don't care for that. The other is more of a natural blonde, reminds me of a school desk. I'm sure my thought is out in left field for some, but I would love some input from others. What I would like to do is make them look more like a instrument. I would like to do (all) the edges in a black fading with a very candied deep wine red with a very high gloss finish. Any thoughts on that? Also it would seem the trim work on the grills are just some pieces of pine? Seems odd, Would it be ok to do a nice hardwood and do the entire front edge of the cabinet? So you don't see the plywood end grains on the front rather than just the grill being framed out? My last question is for the bottom. When I took it off, there was some really hard and crusty type of a cloth seal. Seems to perhaps of had some tar in it. It is no longer pliable and was not really sealing well! What do you all recommend for resealing the bottom of the speaker? Would love to hear anyone's thoughts..
