Will turn out to be a great winter project for someone
Take the time to do it, it wouldnt be that hard!
Very tempted, but too many projects!
Took your advice and started stripping it down today. I'll see how it goes. Restoring a 4x12 is not as easy as it looks though, it can be a lot of work removing all the old glue and staples, restoring any damage in the wood etc.
acetone will disolve that glue quickly.
Use a heat gun to remove the tolex,and just the right temp will take alot of the adhesive with it.
Take some pictures so we can see your progress!
I've never been able to figure out how to remove glue easily. Tried heat gun and Acetone to no avail.
Only luck I had was rolling the glue off with my fingers. Took a month of 30 min sessions to keep the blistering own.
Would like advise!
Have you tried an adheasive dissolve like googone? Followed up by % alcohol to wipe away residue.
I tried acetone and it emuslifies the glue and all, but the
Isopropyl takes it a step further, cleaning the leftover residue. Get the big size!
ByegoneTones is very modest.
He does an excellent cab restoration.
I think the issue is that he is a perfectionist and by the time you add up the time taken to do a top quality resto it has to be more a labour of love because you virtually never get the return oin terms of £ /$ on your efforts.
However, I think that doing a well documented resto video and putting these things on Youtube as a channel to get sponsors with speaker repairs, info, tutorials could be a nice regular income?
I use paint stripper. Apply it generously, let it soak in for a minute or so, and then use a scraper, it flies off. After that just give it a good sanding down.
Thanks Neil. I might do the youtube thing at some point in the future if people are interested, but personally don't feel like I'm at teaching standard myself yet. Still winging it really when it comes to restoring cabs.
I told myself I wasn't going to do any more, but have somehow ended up with a small collection in the garage again. I was just being lazy and trying to offload quickly.
