Yea, seems liek everyone raves about the stuff, but I just don't see it. Like I said, I don't think it can or would dampen much. Just my personal .02

Sand for sure, but don't use 120 grit unless you like lots of lines in your finish. The coarsest I would use would be 400. You are not trying to remove the factory finish, just remove the gloss of it. As far as colors inside, I like the hammered finish, but a satin black would also look sharp. Flat black looks like you primed it in black and forgot to paint it.
It's so little!
