I just finished building a pair of grille frames for my pair of 4333s. I used my 4343 frames as a guide and made these with the open, double frame structure, beveled at 8 degrees, and blocked at the corners and with posts along the sides...as done by JBL on the 4343s. They turned out well, but I did put almost a full week of labor into them. I'd include photos, but my G4 isn't taking my digital card reader right now!
Anyway, can anyone give me some pointers on how to strech the fabric over these and get a nice, even covering over these frames? I was given some JBL Bostic, courtesy of Oldmics, but I sure could use some tips from those with real experience in streching and gluing this fabric.
Thanks in advance.

Tom
