    As I wrote earlier this year I stumbled over a very rare Reußenzehn Model 9.

    Although it was in great working order it looked plainly awful.
    Someone has tried to redo it`s exterior and failed bitterly.
    Because there are two small auxiliary speakers in the front it cannot be tolexed. The former owner obviously took some t-shirt fabric which did not work:

    Since I was not able to scource a picture of an original Model 9 and since the exterior was already altered I took the freedom do redo it my way.
    My friend Markus who is a gifted do-it-yourselfer did most of the work. It was a first attempt for both of us.
    That said I am pretty happy how this turned out (yes, I see the amateur-flaws but I still looks way better than before, imho):

    I think it looks like it just emerged from the factory. You and Markus did an excellent job!

    Thanks, Stefan. Although it is not your prey schema (because there are too much watts in it) I am sure that you would enjoy the sound of a Tele plugged into it.
