Recover & refinish a Marshall 1960TV Cab

So I am in the midst of completely refinishing a very, very beat up 1960TV.

I’m at the step where I removed the staples that affix the piping that goes around the baffle board. They appear to be 22 gauge staples with a 3/16” crown and 3/8” legs.

So I go to TubesAndMore to order new materials, including piping. Then I go to Amazon to buy the staples and they’re seriously hard to find (in that size). Then… to my total chagrin, I go to try to find a narrow-crown finishing staple gun capable of this size staple and it’s non-existent.

What do you guys use? I know you’ll say I’m overthinking it (and to just use some other size staples that I already have laying around). But those narrow-crown staples are probably narrow for a reason (e.g., where they hold the skinny non-backed piping to the inside of the cab).

Any problem with using a larger size staple wire (i.e., different gauge, e.g., 20 gauge)?

Also, I never knew until I removed the tolex last night that those dudes wrap the 1960TV cabs with one continuous sheet of tolex. It’s just over 10-ft long and just wider than 18-inches.

Before:

Huh... Trying to upload some pics and I get the error that says, "Error: Image cannot be posted from the passed link."
Weird. Hyperlink works on the browser, but somehow I can't get it into this post. :(
