Default LEAK Troughline II Top or Bottom Cover

Hello All,

a long shot really.

I am getting really close to finishing a LEAK Troughline II.

It has been apart and on my to do list for too long and I appear to have mislaid one of the covers. I can't remember if they are different, I have one of them here but can't find the other !!!

The II had a top and bottom cover unlike the 3 which had the wrap-around case.

Thanks,

James.

Mods, this can be closed now.

It was always going to be a long shot getting a cover for this.
I have made a new cover so as I say this can be closed now, thanks.

James.

Good afternoon James,
I have just found this. It is the top or bottom off something Leak.
Not sure if it will be too big but you are welcome to it FOC.
It is about 12 1/4" x 8".
Kind regards,
David
ps thanks for the picture for my Leak restringing

Hello David,

that's very kind of you.
Those measurements are too large for the Troughline II though.
I'm wracking my brains to think what they're from !!!

I ended up making one out of an aluminium sheet in the thought that it wouldn't be seen so I'd use it as the bottom cover. However, it has turned out really well (see the picture) so it's my new Top cover !!

All the best,

James.

P.S. Did you sort your re-stringing?

Good morning James,

I suspected it would be too large but it seems you are sorted.

Stringing sorted too.

Thanks for your help.

Kind regards,

David
