    Can I re-tolex my head?

    Yes, my head. Is is doable to re-tolex your own amp? Mine's red so I just want it to look new, along with the unique red face. The aesthetic is worth the penny.

    Make sure you spray it white first - then red. The white acts as a primer layer. Vinyl dye adheres chemically to the vinyl and also adheres to itself very well. You have a durable, scratchproof finish for less effort, hassle and swearwords and with much more colour choice than re-tolexing.

    Spray outside or wear a filter mask, though.
