I had to buy it! It sounds awesome, it sure is fudgy. I have a brand spanking new white Fender 100T tube head, should I tolex the cabinet white or black?

Thanks Bud, I really appreciate that. This was my first attempt at tolexing something. The first glue I tried to use softened up the old glue which made it very easy to scrape off with a paint scraper, then I sanded it with 80 grit sandpaper. I ended up using 3M spray on adhesive number 77 which gave me enough time to reposition it. It took about five hours from beginning to end. $160 for the cabinet on craigslist, https://flic.kr/p/ACwEc1 $50 for the tolex, it's now listed in the classified section, on CL and on eBay for $750.
