All the components in my system are black including my center, rears and sub. My L40's are oak veneer with a medium blonde finish. When it comes to woodwork I am a novice. But, I don't think refinishing the wood will be that big of a problem. Any suggestions on what type black finish I should go with? I was hoping to use some type of spray paint to keep things easy and avoid brush marks. Also, should I use spray paint for the cloth grilles? Can someone suggest a site for this type of DIY project. Thanks!
