I am in the process of building a pair of GR Research AV-1s. I bought some really great unfinished cabinents from Brian, and need a little help / advice. Since I have no real skills with woodworking :b , I thought I would keep the cabinents simple (if I like the speakers, they can be moved to surrounds, and better finished AV-1's can be made for the front). Here is what I did. The cabinents were primered, painted with a textured paint, and then painted with a high gloss black paint. I think they look pretty good. However, my question is, would it make sense to put on a clear coat now, to kind of "seal in" the look? thaniks a bunch.
