    My first original jubilee, sounds amazing. Bit rough on the outside so will need to clean and reglue some tolex, any recommendations of easy to find adhesives for tolex and how to clean the tolex?

    Here is my main question, taking the chassis in and out to me on this amp is an insane struggle, anyone have any tips? Found it very difficult to support the chassis in the perfect spot while attempting to screw it in.

    Here are some pics, I have got a lot of pictures of the inside but apparantly my phones quality is too large, what do you guys use on the forum to link lots of photos, dropbox, imgur?

    Turn cab upside down and get two bolts in caddy corner, then upright for the other two?
    edit: Happy NAD!

    Ended up putting it upside down on a chair and screwing it in from the bottom.

    An auto parts store should have headliner/carpet glue.

    The problem there is that its probably in a spray can. But you could spray it in a disposable cup and then brush it on.

    Another thing an auto parts store should have is weather stripping adhesive in a tube. Easier to apply. Pick up a roll of blue shop towels while your there. Get some black gloves while there too. They should know what you mean.

    Also pickup a bottle of tire dressing to condition the tolex when done. Spray it on the shop towel and then wipe it, so it doesn't get where you don't want it.

    A quart of denatured alcohol or acetone should be at your local hardware store for a cleaner pre adhesive. Put it on on a towel to wipe it rather than poring it directly on the surface your cleaning. You will use this where you plan on applying adhesive or for cleaning adhesive off of where you don't want it. A pencil erasure can also be used to clean off excess glue. Maybe test it in an inconspicuous spot first, if you want to use it on the outer surface. Make sure no acetone or denatured alcohol gets on any guitars! Make sure you have gloves on and are in a well ventilated area.

    Just some soapy water for most of the outer surface after gluing. Once again a car wash soap might be better because it won't dry out the vinyl.

    Another good exterior tolex cleaner is actually WD40 wiped on followed by wiping it off. But you don't want any oils near where you want to glue.

    Thanks for the help, probably try some vinyl glues at an auto store or check some old threads

    Contact cement can glue tolex.
    You apply a thin coat to both halves, and let it almost dry. Then you mate the parts together.

    Turning the amp upside down is probably the best way to deal with the chassis. Also makes installing tubes easier.

    Its the perfect volumme for me, if its getting late i can lower the output master an chuck it in 25w mode. Its at the perfect volume right before its moving too much air and you can feel your eardrums moving (that feeling when you hear a loud clean signal) , definitely can get loud if I need it to though

    These look similar to my settings on my 500W mini head clone, although for band practise master volume is at around 11 a.m.
