Adjusting properties of polar histogram

Hi all, I'm using the polarhistogram function with Matlab R2017a.
I'm trying to do a couple of things and can't figure out how to adjust these properties.
1) Change the radius scale from fractions to percents.
2) Add labels for the radius / degree axis.
3) Change the background grid lines from gray to black.
Are there easy ways to do the above? Thank you.

The best way to see what properties a figure has is to open the property inspector.
  1. set the RTickLabel property. Make sure you have a label for each tick. Note that the label text is indepedent of the tick location value. You can set tick locations with the RTick property.
  2. Set the ThetaTickLabel property (one for each tick). Note that the label text is independent of the tick location value. You can set tick locations with the ThetaTick property.
  3. Set the GridColor property. Because the line is so thin, making it black doesn't make it much darker. I do not see a property for grid line width.
% Example from the doc
theta = [0.1 1.1 5.4 3.4 2.3 4.5 3.2 3.4 5.6 2.3 2.1 3.5 0.6 6.1];
h=polarhistogram(theta,6)
set(gca,'RTickLabel',[0 0.1 0.2 0.3 0.4],...
"ThetaTickLabel",[0:3:30],...
"GridColor",'k')
