Question Damaged speaker "coating".


I'm not really going to make my own speakers, but I'd like to repair them. I have a couple of Q-Acoustics with a damaged graphite "coating" on the corners of the box (see pictures in attachment). I have no idea why this is happening, but I'm guessing the sun might be the culprit...

Is there a way to fix this myself? Just to be clear: I have never done anything like this before.

Thank you in advance for your answers!

Looks like it is a veneer and it is starting to peel off. UV and sun can cause this and also moisture damage. Unfortunately it is difficult to repair short of removing all of the veneer and re-doing it...
