sound waves reinforcing oneanother I heard that... literally... Just an update the build is nearing its end... I went for the ported design with a few mods to the original sketch I was good.  I got two fender 300watt 15" speakers in it and two black widows... Man it totally rumbles my whole house the coliseum lead I was testing with nearly vibrated off the cabinet.  So i put acoustical foam on the interior and it sounds great... the jaack is the old school 3/4" disc sunn/ fender type.  I added scoop handles similar to those found on marshalls.   silver corners and black tolex... I will post all myt pics when i'm finished with the grill cloth, which i just got in the mail... thanks to jeff troy, you're the ma couldn't of replicated it as well without you!!!...i'll post some pics and descriptions later...

I wanted to thank Jeff Troy for publishing his restoration techniques in this thread. I am using them on my 200S amp and I am shocked at how well it works.
The pictures just don't do it justice. I had to vary from the exact products recommendations because they are not available where I live.

Here's what I did use...
Simple Green I used this on a '66 Fender grill and was amazed at how well it took off cigarette smoke stain
Gorilla Super Glue to fix a couple of small tears. Worked great
Kiwi Black Scuff Cover   This is truly amazing stuff. The wife and I could not believe how well this stuff worked.
Meguiars Next Generation Tech Protect Interior Protectant Sprayed it on, rubbed it around and let it sit. After a couple hours had to wipe some of it off and then it dried.

So thanks Jeff, for the tricks.

Hi, Greg,

Thanks for the nice words. All the substitutions you chose are top quality products.

It's amazing how simple a restoration can be using simple methods and commonly available products. All you have to do is apply both the methods and products the right way.

Glad I could help.

Warmest regards...
