Seafoam Green RV50 Project Pics!

Post by OrangeInIowa » Tue Apr 14, 2009 4:35 am

Hey guys,
Just wanted to share some pics of my newly recovered halfstack. Don't get me wrong, I love the orange tolex but I've always wanted to do this for fun and have a custom look.

It was a lot of work but I'm pretty happy with the new look. The only weird thing is i now have a green orange amp...which really sucks explaining to people who ask what kind of gear I have. haha, oh well. It's funny, I've had a couple guys try to explain to me that I have a green matamp and I'm like no dude, can I punch you in the throat now?!!

As far as the details go, I had originally planned on replacing the grill cloth with some silver fender stuff but came to find out you cant get the baffle out of the cab with out breaking the glue joints on the front or back sides, and I didn't feel like completely destroying my cab, so scratch that plan. I ended up just spray painting it instead which actually turned out pretty nice.

I also added some teal accents on the head by spraying the top and rear vents. Then I made a new teal decal for the controls on the front.

and I'm sure you're all wondering so...

All in all, I really think my tone sounds a lot warmer now overall and I'm thinking it added another gain stage as well. Haha! You didn't think I went to all this work just for looks did you? ... k1-web.jpg ... ad-web.jpg ... k1-web.jpg

That's a strange look to swallow, but very cool indeed! :)

How did you re-color the faceplate? :o

All i did to the faceplate was put a new decal over the old orange strip. I work at a signshop so I'm able to make any type of stickers I need really. Comes in handy for this type of stuff for sure. Glad you guys enjoyed the odd take on it's appearance. It is a little out there.

Refreshing! I like it better than black or white, and its just a great match with that orange!

I'm not usually a big fan of the seafoam color, but this looks great, and then a week or so ago Greg posted pictures of his re-tolexed Dr. Z rig, and both look great.

Really nice job!

I think your Orange amp is a little on the RIPE side......
Looks very cool, strange, but very cool...

Looks really cool. You should have a Surf Green Strat to match that! :D
I'm speaking out of my a$$. Yours might differ.

That is awesome! :shock: I like this view too:


Of course, I may be biased towards amps in that color! :oops:
