    Leave the cracks in the finish...nothing really can be done except a complete strip and refinish. The finishes on these crack like glass.

    Parts for Vox's are nearly non-existant...I just watch eBay for beater Vox's for parts.

    You might consider looking around for another Cougar bass. They weren't all that popular, so finding one to use as parts might be difficult.

    Althought the Cougar was made in Italy, it was not made by EKO in Recantti, but rather Crucianelli who were another well known Italian guitar maker.

    It you were to compare a Vox Cougar Bass made by Crucianelli side by side to a Vox Skybolt IV made by EKO, you can clearly see the differences in each manufacturers designs. And both instruments share the same basic body design.
