Speaker Grille Cleaning

Alright guys, it's been a long time since my last post. I've since started a backline rental company and business is picking up!

But, enough of that. I have been buying a lot of amps as cheap as I can and came across this 1960b cab at GC for $260. You can see why it was so cheap. I don't want to get into the re-tolexing because I cannot recommend it due to the nasty adhesive Marshall uses and all of the shortcuts I used to achieve passable results. I will never do another.

I want to tell you about the dirty grille. It was never going to match the tolex. So after I removed the drivers, stretched out the loose areas in the fabric, and restapled it I grabbed a can of Armor All Tire Foam. Yep, I hosed it down twice, let it work, and it looks brand freakin new! Yes this is the same cab.
