    Why would you want to remove the baffle?

    Maybe I'm on the wrong track? I want to strip the remove the speakers and hardware, strip the tolex, fille cabinet cracks/dings, sand the cabinet, re-tolex the cab, then reinstall the speakers. Leaving the speakers installed would be to heavy to work with the cabinet. Is the baffle (including the speakers removable? It seemed easier to leave the speakers attached to the baffle, so reinstallation wouldn't involve re-wiring anything.

    Baffle glued in permanent. You just remove the speakers. Make a diagram of the wiring as you go, and/or, take masking tape or something and label each connecton.

    Then remove all other hardware, etc. Strip, refinish, reassemble.

    Thanks will33. For some reason I envisioned the entire baffle board coming out freely with speakers attached. Duh... Makes sense that baffle board would be permanently attached so as not to rattle over time. Actually this should make the project easier and provide better protection for the speakers.

    If you go through the painful process of removing the tolex, don't put tolex on again.
    Use a painted protection like Duratex or something similar.
    They are more resistant, easy to repair with touchups if needed and lighter.
