That looks good.

Did you give them a light sand and then a coat of Howards?

I wondered if these would benefit from more absorption inside the cabinet.

I chose thickish steel wool first and then finer steel wool after. Opted not to sand them, and the Howard's.

Did you rub the Howard's on with a cloth?
Which one of the Howard's products did you use?

Used the one in the pick below.
Neutral.

You just rub it on with fine steel wool until it starts to thicken, leave it for 5 minutes or so and wipe it with kitchen towel. Pretty simple process and the results are great.

Check out this video on the process

Thank you.

Are you still using nails to attach the grill onto the front baffle?

Yip, very small cabinet nails. Until I think of a different solution. Maybe small magnets
