    What do you want to do?

    You can repair the seam in the second photo by using contact cement. Apply a thin coat to both the cabinet and to the back of the vinyl, let the adhesive dry then carefully press them together.

    Since you only get one chance to do it, carefully roll you hand over the side of the cabinet to press the seam edges together and eliminate air bubbles underneath.

    As for the tears, you can either:

    1. Leave it alone (cabinet wear makes you look like a road warrior)

    2. Paint the wood that's showing flat black to match the vinyl so it doesn't show so much.

    3. Remove a small piece of vinyl from the bottom of the cabinet and make a patch.

    4. Buy some vinyl from Ampeg to make the repair.

    5. Buy a lot of vinyl from Ampeg, peel off the old vinyl and recover the cabinet using either contact cement or spray adhesive like 3M Super 77.

    It's all up to you!!!

    thanks, I'll probably stick new vinyl here and there ...
  5. My 810 looks like it has been through the apocalypse, but that's okay by me.

    I bought the cab to make some serious noise not to look pretty, so far she has been doing exactly that without a hicup for 3 years of giging.
  6. If it still works it doesn't matter what it looks like.
