I need some help.

The top of the L65 has the famous smoked glass, and underneath, what appears to be a very thin piece of dense foam backed by a equally thin piece of cardboard with a cutout for the JBL badge.

I would like to replace the foam/cardboard piece to restore it's looks.

Anyone have any pointers, or knows of some resource I can consult?


Thanks

I think I read a few years back that one of the older members here said they used black matting material from a picture frame shop ...
