        I recently did an M100C and remembered previous frustration and poor
results. Determined not to repeat this, I took a rectangle of medium weight
1/4" grid wire mesh and stapled it across the grille board, around the edges
and a few at intervals in the middle area, where the slots are. 
        I masked the whole rest of the cabinet with paper and then laid it flat
on its back. By myself (a helper probably wouldn't have hurt), I sprayed the
grid-covered grille board liberally and then pressed the grille cloth onto the
mesh, starting at the bottom and moving towards the top. 
        The finished results were much better than other earlier attempts. I
used the gold cloth from Victory. I'll do it this way in the future- maybe I'll
get even better at it!

        Good luck & skill too.
