OP edited to include better pictures! I've included two pictures of the box which came with a rather nice Jones 20-button C/G I acquired recently. I'd be grateful for some suggestions relating to the best way to re-furbish this box. It's painted black, but the paint is cracking and worn. Do I: 1) Sand it back to the bare wood; 2) Use paint stripper to ditto; 3) Use a scraper to ditto? How do I treat the cleaned case: 1) Paint; 2) Varnish; 3) Paper? The inside is papered, but the paper is torn and stripped off in places. Do I 1) Re-paper; 2) Re-line with fabric (like on some of my other cases). What adhesive do I use? The lid has (presumably) had an insert to hide the strap. Do I replace with 1) A card insert; 2) A wood insert; 3) Not bother and just paint/varnish/paper the wood? Roger
