    Does anyone know of a "kit" for recovering cabinets. I would like to recover mine but would rather do it myself. Or where is the best place to find the pieces parts needed.
    I would prefer a nice felt cover.

    I have a cab I might need to recover. It's a new cab except for the cats I'm about to kill. I keep it in the closet (the cab) and they still manage to get in there somehow. Anyway, what's the best material to use for recovering besides the duratuff carpet stuff? I've thought of using 1000 D cordura nylon, as it is tough and rip resistant. Does anyone see any difficulty in using this material for a cab covering, besides cost?

    You could probably use the Cordura, but I personally think that it'd be a little hard to keep all of the wrinkles out when attaching it. Maybe you have already thought of that though...

    Doug, that's one of my favorite quotes from good 'ole JT!

    I was thinking of having it professionally done, although I guess I could iron the pieces before I put it on. So, military green, navy blue, alert orange or camo? thanks Knight
