    The tolex on one of my mesa cabs is coming of in the back and I was wondering what I could use to fix it as far as glue or anything like that.

    Elmers white glue. Don't put too much on. Use blue painter's tape to hold the tear in place until the glue dries.

    Depending on how bad the tear is, meaning how much has lifted, I've had great success with the varieties of super glues. Other types will not hold as long. If you get some on your finger tips, it wears off real soon. :cool:

    I've used Super Glue before on Ampeg cabs that I've owned in the past, with good results.

    I used contact cement on my '67 Portaflex cab. A little tricky as far as allowing the right amount of time between application and joining, but will hold forever if done right.

  7. Sharpie marker... at least for all those nicks where the tolex is completely gone

    Back when Tolex was called naugahyde, they had repair kits that worked pretty well. It even textured the repair area. But I didn't get that you tore your naugahyde, it's just coming loose, right? In that case, just glue it back like others have said.
