    someone offered me, a back panel that is supposed to me for a small box made by Mojo. It doesn't fit my 71 small box at all, too long by 1/4" too tall buy 1/8. Weird folded stapled mesh and poor match smooth tolex.

    Is this as good as it gets? Photos of replacement panels in place are appreciated.

    Your going to need to call around unfortunately.
    Probably tell them exactly the dimensions you need.
    All 5 major builders build them different from when I was looking for a dead nuts cab.. got frustrated and decided you will have to tell and show them how to build what you want.

    You will need this gold mesh as it is the only one that has the right diamond pattern.

    You will have to strip it and repaint as it rubs flakes off..
    Also make sure the tolex is legit Marshall brand or else you will get a knock off. Genuine Marshall is the closet to the old stuff.

    I had no idea. I'm not even sure it's worth it to try for a replica. Maybe I'll just screw in a "soldano" like hunk of diamond mesh, then there will be no doubt is not original.

    Just to be fair to Mojo, I don't know for a FACT they built this back panel that doesn't fit.

    Do what I did - make your own.
    Piece of ply and some Marshall levant.
    In the Uk the mesh is available from hardware/craft shops

    I doubt Mojootone made it based on how your describing it!? They make excellent products. Just call them and tell them what you have and what you want. They will tell you what they need from you.

    Sourmash may be another option. They also make excellent Marshall cabs.

    I got a small box back panel from Mojotone for my 1987t. It fit fine , I just had to trim an inch off each side of the cutout , because it's a trem chassis (they probably would've done that had I a$ked )
