    On the underside of the grill opening is a very fine mesh material. What is it's purpose?

    I want to paint the exterior but the paint would cling to the material and degrade the sound.

    Hi Chuck ,
    Sorry I don’t have an answer to your question but I’m curious as to what speaker grill you are using. Do you have a photo? I ordered some grills the other day that I think are a little more period correct than the ugly a$$ things that are in the car now. Thanks

    Probably to keep out bugs and dirt. Really can make a racket when bouncing around on the speaker cone. Might keep the sunlight off the cone somewhat too.

    Got some inexpensive ones from Amazon.

    The fine mesh material on the back
    *** keeps junk from getting on the hardware.
    *** Affects the lighting to hide the hardware. I could this masking after I took the material off of one and placed the other next to it. Found replacement material pretty close to what the grills will be painted.
