    continuing from part 1

    After repairing some of the previous owner's signs of bad use with epoxy and sawdust, the re-Tolexing progress started right away...

    Then it was Oxblood time...

    So after the cab was re-done, i had to install the Delta-Pros in the cab, only to find out that they couldn't fit side by side in that cab!!! :FM

    It was really naive of me not to measure before ordering, but based upon other peoples reviews on using Delta Pros in twins, i assumed they would fit...
    Probably my cab had a "thing"... Anyway, action time so i calculated, measured and started ...digging!

    and after a lot of careful and hard work, i had to cover the routing

    The Deltas snuggly fit in the cab, so much i had to instert a piece of rubber between them in order to avoid rattling against each other...

    The top back panel was out for years due to the bad contition of the supporting wood underneath, so since i couldn't find the mounting screws, i applied velcro and it worked fine with no rattles.

    And here's how the Amp looks like after all:

    Todays tip: Baffle boards from the blackface era are made of composite (particle board). They tend to break apart on the edged covered by grill cloth. A medium coating of elmer's or wood glue, spread with the finger, goes a long way in protecting that edge. It soaks in and dries stronger than the wood. Its is a great preservation measure when replacing the grill cloth on an old amp.

    I just picked up a Super Twin Reverb for my son and am in the process of cleaning it up. He needs it for school and I only have a month to get it ready.

    After seeing what a fantastic job you did and how nice it looks finished, I think that I'll just repair and polish up the original cab and then take the time to build a new one. I can transfer the amp and speakers later.

    I am a cabinet maker by profession, and I think you really did a first class job on that cabinet. That amp never looked so good even when it was new. Great job.

    I made a few random recordings just to show how the amp behaves, so please excuse the lame playing.:huh

    All clips were recorded with a sennheiser e606 on a E-MU 0202 soundcard and no post processing.
    I'm a newbie at amp recording, so don't expect any pro style sounds...
