the area under the bridge was actually ok. Once the plate was off I closed up the cracks

Beautiful and impressive!

Here's a quick newby question on repairing such an instrument. I replaced a top on existing sides but can't imagine taking a top off then trying to get it back on without gaps. I don't need a lot of details but do you basically just remove it carefully without damaging the edge and then glue it back in? Perhaps clamping a bit differently to squeeze in the sides vs just pushing down from the top (go-deck?)

So cool to have that 000 making music again.

edit - got your article. Thanks! The answer was that you just aligned and taped it on w/ the binding off. Of course! haha.
