    Anyone have any thoughts on re-tolexing a beat up 810e cab I just got and will be reselling?

    A lot of folks who are inquiring about the cab get turned off with a 4"x2" tolex tear and other peeling/tear areas and thought I would check out if anyone has any experiences they could share.

    Has anyone ever attempted to do it themselves?

    I archived a Tolex Tutorial. This was on a Yahoo forum some years back.

    I recommend water-based contact cement. Don't use the green stuff.

    who's shopping for used fridges, and is turned off by the fact the tolex isn't mint? to me, thats 110% expected.
