    Vid,

    Wonder if you have any recommendations on repairing a 88 bally Blackwater cabinet. Looks like entire cabinet was made out of particle board. You can probably imagine what the edges look like. Would it be beneficial for me to have a new cab and back box made or is it possible to repair this cab. I can supply pics if I need to. Thanks

    Quoted from vid1900:

    Those cabs were trash, even when they were new.
    Let's see some pics

    Ok here some pics of the problem areas. I thought about sanding all the edges back to where I could go back with fiberglass to rebuild those edges. Got the idea from reading this post. Cab looks pretty bad all around but the edges are extremely bad.

    Quoted from vid1900:

    There is quite a bit of swelling on that cab.

    I'd probably replace the 3/4" T-molding with 1" and trim it back.

    Good idea with the t-molding. Have any idea on the front corner of the lower cab. Glue doesn't normally hold well on partial board. Thanks vid
