I'm walking everyone through the steps in a few days, or less than a week, whenever the rains stop. I'll probably get started again on Monday afternoon at this rate, weatherman, nature and God willing.Originally posted by 594life
after looking at the job I did, I've decided that there is no way to fix it. I need to start over, and do it right from the start. Would you be able to walk me through the steps some time in the future? Will you have pics to help as well? I'll be patient and wait for you when you work on yours. Thanks again.
Four. I overlap them slightly over the piping channels, then cut them down the center of the channel. I also paint the channels black first to allow for any possible "peaking" of the paint around the piping. That's usually not a problem if the piping is cut right, and you're careful. But for tutorial purposess, we'll paint it black in case you cut it off center just slightly.Originally posted by 594life
Do you use one piece or 4 pieces of tolex to cover a marshall style 4x12?
LOL. Yeah, probably they will work for you if you're installing suede... but stretching the suede tight might cause some rips...so be careful with it!Originally posted by 908SSP
Will these instructions work if I want to recover my 4x12 with suede? I think goes better with my black Vox grill cloth
Glad you like them! They're pretty comfortable, suede w/sheepskin lining ($19 at Costco). Great for cold mornings when I'm walking the dog through the fog...like this morning....but I digress.... please check out my latest restoration. I found a 1970 Marshall "beater cab" that had been recovered with the wrong tolex, corners added...etc... I took it back to stock. So I started off with this cab:Originally posted by Prymo
I like those slippers... thanks alot for showing us all how to do this.
Thanks for the kudos on the cab. I'll be doing the same thing to the slant cab in a couple of days, and it will all be pretty clear as to how you do it. I'll probably have time to do it on Thursday or Friday. The slant cab still needs to have it's piping channels cut first...then I can complete this with the piping, and all that good stuff.Originally posted by 594life
Would you be able to post a few pics of the step by step corner cutting process? Oh by the way, that cab looks GREAT! I hope I can make mine look half as good as yours!
Ok gents, here's how to cut your corners, and not make them look like dog crap...Originally posted by 594life

Yeah, a far cry from the $212 eBay "beater cab", huh? Total cost?Originally posted by HeeHaw
That cab looks straight up badass now!
