hey all, got a question that may seem kinda weird (or maybe not...i don't know). i got a new gator case for x-mas. it is a double bass guitar case...wood construction and a black vinyl exterior. but i know that a hard plastic case will last me a lot longer than this one. now my question is, is it possible to recover the vinyl with a hard plastic? maybe something like a spray on coating (i.e. spray-on bed liners). ya know, cover all the locks/hinges/handles with some tape and put a heavy-duty coat of something on it. anyone ever experimented with this or even heard of doing this. if so, got any pros or cons of it? what can you use to do this? can't be too hard to do, right? any info you guys may have to offer would be greatly appreciated.
