Old 2 x 4 case with seemingly thick interior.
What do I need to know removing the guts?

Should I just start ripping?
Pry the bottom open and pull?

I'm going to replace padding with pvc tubes.

This seems like good advice!

I doubt the tubes would fit very well within the larger existing tube.

frankly speaking, the case was trashed, found it floating in lake.

So......here we are

the empty case can hold 1 butt, 5 shafts or 2 butt, 4 shafts.

Ususally you can just pull the entire tube out, material and all by grabbing the material in the tube and giving it a yank. I know my 2x4 tube cases fit a 2x4 JB interior so maybe this will work for you. If you can get it out and the tubes don't fit you can always put the old one back in.

Oh, no sir I can't. I retired from the case business almost a year ago.

Sorry sir, I've retired from case making, I was just trying to help you get the interior out. Like I said it should just pull out.

I'll start with it tonight.
Open the back, pull the bottom out, hope I don't run in to alot of glue.

I used heat to evaporate the lake water, lost 1/2"inch length and I don't know how much circumstance is gone but it sure did get skinny.

I wouldn't take the bottom off if it was me, I'd pull it out of the top

If you are set in deciding to do this, you might want to consider thinner wall tubing than PCV. I had a buddy do one, it was a 3x5 case, and he used thinner wall tubes that are used in golf bags for club separation. He hot-melted them together to get a strong bundle and specific shape, then slid that whole assembly into his case. Not as nice as a new one but certainly lighter than a PVC alternative might be, and it did the job he needed it to do.

When I have shipped cues inside suitcases, I sometimes use the same tubing to protect the cue, with a felt sleeve liner from Predator, provided I don't want to ship my entire cue case.

what I know at this point....
Jack Justis had nothing to do with it.


This is what came out so far.

I'm glad you chimed in, Thanks.

Trash finds can be fun. What's this case look like? Is it worth your time? If it is, JB can make you an interior - they tend to do this for a handful of cases I've seen on the market.
