I recently picked-up a used 1984 Peavey Fury bass as my first bass. It's in very good shape, is pretty well set-up, and sounds just fine. I am quite happy with it!
It came with the original, hard-plastic case.
The case is quite grungy, and the foam padding inside the case in the cavity for the body of the bass has mostly disintegrated. The previous owner had placed a bath towel in the compartment to prevent the disintegrating foam & residual glue from getting on the bass. That's how it was shipped to me, and this is a functional fix.
However, I'd like to fully refurbish the case if possible. My wife is confident she can make a crafts project out of re-padding the body cavity of the case if I can get all the old foam & glue out of there. Hence, two questions:
* What is the best thing for cleaning the plastic surfaces of the case (outside & inside)?
* What is the best way to remove the disintegrating foam & glue from the body cavity inside the case?
Thanks much in advance.
Oh, and I'm having a ball so far! Why did I wait till age 52 to start playing bass?!
