Re-fitting old cases to a change of gun or stock alteration. Maybe the case is "tired" and needs to be totally renovated. You might need a new handle and straps. These are the parts of an old case which tend to wear out due to the constant use.
Here is a case which has had new straps and handle. A wash, wax and polish to put some life back into the leather. Finally a total re-fit for a pair of guns.
Re-fitting can be either partial or full. Partial re-fits tend to be more repair than anything else.
The leather on the outside of a case can, in most instances, be brought back to its former glory by the careful application of cleaning, feeding and stitching. The only time that leather cannot be fully renovated is when rot has set in and the surface is dry and crumbling. Usually the rot can be stopped but permanent damage will always be present.
It is not recommended to clean the brass fittings on a case because you lose that wonderful patina built up over many years. Just a wipe with clean water and some saddle soap will remove dirt and leave the patina intact.
