    I would cut a long narrow strip of said material (maybe from the routed out oblong strip material), say 1 cm narrower on top and bottom so it´s invisible, 2 or 3 cm shorter at each end so it clears the mounting cleats, and glue it along the bottom strip for added strength, on the inside of course.

    Leo would have cut two smaller oblong holes instead, leaving center untouched for strength but you already cut, so ....

    Thanks JM,

    I made the back panel out of what we call "Masonite" or "Hardboard".
    Very similar to what was used for the original.

    It's 1/4" thick and fairly stiff with the Tolex on it.

    Breakage was/is a slight concern... I thought about reinforcing it with something, but it seems fine.
    It does vibrate somewhat when playing loud but doesn't add any noise that I can hear.
    It was so easy to make I could do another with the double cutouts if it gets damaged.

    As you can see I have not yet applied any shielding foil.
    I plan to, but the amp is quiet even without it.

      Just make sure the foil is grounded via chassis contact, if you do (shouldn't be a problem). Otherwise the foil could make things worse.
