    After owning a pair for a long while now, I want to build a pair that look as good as they sound. It seems to me the stainless steel chassis' looks too utilitarian. Thanks for the compliments. With the cost of the top plates, I want to make sure everything is in perfect alignment,and all the punch-outs are the right size.

    Denny, they look great! Awesome job. Are these new transformers or are they recycled them from another amp? Do you have any under the chassis pictures?

    Hey Sal, thanks and you are really too kind!! Since I recycled these from a recently built Mark IV some of the wires weren't long enough so I had to add some wiring,and it's not real pretty,but I will post some under chassis pics if you want me too.

    No need to take pictures of the bottom, its the top that counts, and they look great!
