    It is possible, but it might be hard to find the green carpet to match. As far as free goes...I highly doubt it.

    I re-tolexed a mesa boogie 212 cab last summer...and it wasn't so bad. I was kind of a pain, but it came out pretty good. I had to remove the drivers, strip the old tolex off. That was the worst part. Sand down the cabinet to get all the old glue off. Then you use "tolex glue" made specifically for this application to secure the new covering. I used a plastic wallpaper squeegee to apply the new tolex. Trimming the corner seams was difficult too. But luckily that cab had metal corners that covered my not so nice looking seams.

    It wasn't too expensive. The replacement tolex was like $12/yd, and the glue was like $8 if I remember correctly. Hope this helps.
