    I wondered if anyone has ever re tolexed their amps? I want to rip all the black tolex off an amp and retolex it in like blue or orange. I think i tried this a couple years ago with my friends cheap little guitar 2x12 and we decided screw it and put the new fabric over the old. Does anyone think id be getting in over my head by trying this?
  2. Go for it.

    Do a search on the net for "amp tolex how to" or something like that. I've seen a couple of web sites that had detailed step by step instructions with pictures.

    Rip the old stuff off though, don't try to go over it.

    It's not that hard. You just need to have the patience to do it right and a really sharp utility knife.
  4. I know some guys that have had this done; Get you cab covered with Line-X truck bed liner! You can get it in any color you can imagine and it's pretty much indestructable. Just a thought. It'll last a hell of a lot longer then Tolex, that's for sure! Check'em out-
