Bud's Epiphone Emperor Resonator Repair

Severe delamination of backplate from sidewall
Reglue and clamp warped backplate
No replacement parts

Completed the removal of delaminated backplate

You can see the deflection, it is not domed properly
It has been in dry clime and has lost its form


Glueing one side down to give a point of adhesion to allow me to pull the warped side down
I have heated the pieces to 100F to make them more pliable

Final glue and binding tape to hold until curing

Pulling tape

All sealed back down, ill touch up the finish around the edge  and inside and mail it back to Bud
