Need help with the 6505+ grill mod!

I searched but i didnt find anything on here i could be wrong though if so point me in the right direction. Im looking for a step by step grill mod. Im looking to either take the piece of wood out and paint it like white or something, or i saw the LED mod and that would also be very sick. If anyone had any tips or tricks to this mod it would be much appreciated. This amp is kinda my pride and joy and I would really rather not completely .... it up by doing a half assed job.

Thanks guys,
Nate

I took out the wood panel for the other guitarist in my band, and as far as I can remember, it's really not difficult. His was an old 5150, I'm not sure if the construction is any different, but anyway, this is how I did it: Unscrew the screws on the sides and you should just be able to pull the grille/panel out. get a screwdriver or something else that you can use to pry off the staples to get the grille off of the wood panel. at that point, do whatever you want tot he wood panel ie: paint, or whatever you have in mind (we just scrapped the wood and installed the grille without it, it looks pretty killer). Be careful, however, when stapling the grille back on the panel - the wood is really cheap, brittle stuff, so if you use staples that are too thick, it WILL crack. Pop it back into the front of the head, screw it back in and you should be good to go. I hope that helps!

I remember a guy from a band that used to play down here replaced the "5150" logo with "KILL YOURSELF" it looked like it came from the factory that way too.

I've posted pics here of my old 5150ii and 5150 that I've lit up. There are two screws on each side of the head that's holding the wood panel. Be sure to remove those first!!

There was a guy I seen play live a lot locally who replaced his 5150 logo, with a 666. Needless to say, it looked awesome

So I took out the front grill, I have a question. If the screws went directly into the wood then how would I reinstall the grill without the wood?

I ended up pulling the front wood panel off of the 2 side wood blocks, and then stapling the grill to those and screwing it back in. The grill sits back about a half an inch but I think it looks pretty sweet! While I was in there I also turned the bias up as far as it would go, which did make a noticeable difference, I think I am gonna get the full bias mod though.
