We traded the expanded metal grilles for a pair of round magnet Alnico K-77s removed from my HIPs.  It was a win win for @longdrive03 and me. The switch to Crites CT120 tweeters made the K-77s available.

The problem with anodizing is that the corner pieces are a Zink pot metal and won’t anodize. I had my HIP trim all electroless nickel plated. 

Where did you have that done.  I was going to progressively sand all the pieces up to about 2000 grit then polish with simichrome.  I did this process to some car amplifiers I had and it came out nice but it is an awful amount of work.  At least this time I don't have to sand past the anodizing.

I did the prep work my self. I took the trim to Precision Plating in Salt Lake City. It cost $350 to plate everything.
