“altered” guitar case AND some six flags pictures

My oldest son has started playing the guitar and was given a hand me down hard case.  This was at Christmas time.. well the lining was just in crumbles due to it being 30+ years old!!  I kept saying I was going to redo it for him.. well it was time!
This was the shell after I spent almost a hour trying to get all the BITS out.

It took me even longer to get the cardboard inserts.. and here I thought I was a master of all things cardboard.. HA!
guitar2
All the cardboard covered with batting and one side covered in the material my son picked out.

I thought I was going to need more supplies, but I thought on it over night and figured out a way to make it work.. and I even have some left!

And here it is all finished.. just waiting for a guitar!
