The veneer is coming off so easy with a space heater. Sides and top done, now just back, trim and pedestal. Adhesive is not too heinous. I think it will clean up nicely once I get it outside this spring. When I'm completely done with the exterior, I'll fix it up inside. Clean up the 44 year old dust, new wiring and probably new damping material. I am thinking of finding paint that matches somewhat to my mains, otherwise, the old standard matte black is an option. If I can find a color, I think something like this for grill cloth: https://www.midwestspeakerrepair.com/shop/speaker-cloth-foam/grille-cloth/designer-architect-cloth/gc-130-light-beige-speaker-cloth/
That color might not go with matte black speakers though. Or would it? What do you think?
Also plan on banana jacks. If this this was still all original with the sticker, etc, I might've considered keeping it original including the terminals. But in this case I do not mind doing these improvements to it. I do have the grill, but it is a mess, so I tossed it in the shed for now.
Btw, thanks to TLS Guy for stopping over and testing my speakers, which prompted me to change my center speaker. Less than 24 hours after he left, I was driving home with this monster.
