    I have this case for a 34" BT100 single barrel. The last owner had a brass name plate attached with an adhesive. Removing it created a problem as you can see.

    Other than a larger brass plate, is there a repair or refurbish method for the vinyl on this type of case?

    Thanks, Dusty

    Nothing that's going to be cheap or look original.

    Proof, that good intentions paved the road to hell. So what bothers you more, the name plate, or the case looking like that? LOL.

    I think there is some vinyl repair kits out there where you could get close, but not perfect. I think covering it with something would be the best option. Maybe even buy some sticky vinyl, or material and cover both the whole panels with it. To make it look the same on both sides. Just razor off the edging, so it fits down tight in the edging. Fill in the void area first with some type of filler.

    You may just want to sell me the case for a reasonable amount. Thanks, Tim

    Just go down to the local trophy shop and get another brass plate have your initials put on there if you like, then when you sell it or pass it on to your kids let them worry about it, just my op.

    Put a sticker over it or MAL53's idea. Only you and everyone who's read this post will know it's there. BT100dc
