    ,..on how to apply tweed to a pine cab.

    I was checking out YouTube tonight but it was a crapshoot. A few years ago I found a simple but clear picture for picture walkthrough but I cannot seem to locate it at the moment. Anyone have a guide they would recommend?

    would you believe using double face tape instead of glue?

    I made one some time ago, but the pics were deleted when photobucket changed their format. I'll have to see if I can find those pics and redo the tutorial.

    I caught this one yesterday but it still wasn't what I was looking for. I remember one 'instructable' where it was step by step pictures with a short but helpful writeup accompanying them. The best part about it was it was specifically for tweed. I can't find it and I'm guessing it went down in the great Photobucket fire from a few years back. A bunch of tutorials are still up but missing pictures.

    The pedal board one was the best I could find.

    I thought this one was good.

    The only thing I wonder about is how he was able to cut all 4 pieces of the tweed going the same same direction, same strip of fabric. I did that on my first tweed fail and couldn't get the pieces to line up right on the amp.

    I wouldn't want to subject myself to this. The fumes must be overwhelming.
