Nice job on this Casey. I remember seeing some of these photos years ago but this is a much better way to take it in. See you in the forums.

I wrote the original “Tutorial” in 1997 but I lost all my hosting in 2008. So I got a resurrection recently when the very nice folks here allowed me post this.

It’s not difficult to do with a “game plan” to get you started and eventually develop your own style of craftsmanship.

Can I re-tolex my head?

Hi, I don’t know if any one can help me. This is a great article and it will be most useful as I want to recover my Vox AD60VTX and AD120. I can get the right Vox Tolex, so no problem there. The issue I have is with the front speaker board. Theses look like they are glued in and I need to get them out without damaging the front piping, grill cloth and top tolex band. Once these are out I can then strip the sides,top and bottom and will be able to wrap the tolex around the front edges of the cabinet. And the replace the front this time with screws as per the Vox Service manuals for these amps. Any help would be appreciated as I don’t wasn’t to damage these Amps, albeit their second hand.

Type in tolex glue into Google. There are a few companies out there. Great tutorial! I was wondering if you had any advice on slightly curved cabinets!?
