Not too shabby :) Heres a load of random pics of the build and end result! Waiting for Mike to let us know how it sounds. Rotten cad didn't include the valves when he brought the chassis and speaker!

I count 33 attachments...
You know that we, mere mortals, can only do 3 attachments per post?

Anyways, nice work for the photos downloaded so far, it is still downloading now so I will see the remainder in the next hour or so...

I didn't count them, like you say - we have to limit mere mortals whereas forum gods can do what thy wilt :twisted:

p.s. I'll look at lifting the attachment rule to maybe 4 or even 5!

As far as I'm concerned this is BG's best work :clap: The cab is beaudiful. Anyhow, got reverb tank installed, speaker cable made, valves installed, powered her up on the Variac just in case and....... stay tuned!

I noticed some of the pics looks like a couple of creases in the grill cloth! Mist some water on there and dry with a hairdryer. That should tighten them out!

Oh shit one other thing I forgot! The bolts holding the baffle on are a little bit long - they'll poke through in about 10 years or so - just stick an extra washer on them, thats about all it needs!

I meant to sort them this morning and it went straight out of my head! thanks!

De-Solv-it, mitre10 or bunnings. It works on everything.
