video makes tolex look *easy*`

i've watched a bunch of different how to's on tolexing, but none have given me the feeling "i can do this" like this one has

I can do this...., lol....



I was looking for a custom metal grill for the b210 cab I'm making and found this place, just a couple miles from me over in north hollywood. I'm getting a 23.5 x 14.75 for only $23.52 + $3 pickup in person fee. I was going to only cover the speaker, but it came out to less than the $20 minimum order, so now I'm covering the entire front panel instead.

using the 62.4% open area black powder coated metal grill material shown below:

yeah they have all the other typical amp mesh too, plenty of styles to choose from

I like the way this guy does the tolex 'cus of the way he positions everything FIRST and then sprays both sides, and then just tips the box over so the glued sides meet. and since they were together when sprayed, there's already enough bond at the bottom to keep it from slipping out of position. BRILLIANT! :idea:

all the other how to's I've seen had both pieces separate when applying the glue, and then you just gotta be mr. super accurate and get 'lucky' to slap the one piece on top of the other and hope you didn't miss.

really, this takes that challenge away!
