    Present amp cover is Blue Tolex, and been used since 1966. Needs replacement. I'm having trouble finding one pre-made to replace the original. Any help as to where I can locate one?

    Agreed - fliptops.net
    They have just about everything you could need to restore a B-15, including custom parts designed to replicate the original parts.

    Go to an auto upholstery shop. They can sew one up in about two minutes and you'll have your choice of colors.

    Bill - I don't think he's really asking about a "cover", per se. The blue tolex is what was glued over the plywood of the cabinet. It looks like he's trying to recover the cabinet...
