I know I asked this in the VK thread, but what are your plans for the front panel? Are you keeping the metal plate with the Peavey logo on it? Any aesthetic plans for the head overall? Or are you sticking with keeping it as close to the original as possible?

In a sense, i will be doing this. By adding a peice of wood to the side, from the bottom to the top, and the amp will rest on it.

mojotone.com is an exceelent resource for tolex/ amp parts. Also I would sand your edges in that nice rounded look. I think it will be sweet!

Fair enough - not going for anything more 'edgy' or original with the new head design then?

Not saying that's a bad thing, I just think that if you were to go to all the trouble of making a new chassis, etc, you could give it a bit of a personal/custom look. Custom stuff has personality!

True, i considered using plexi, but really i have no idea where to get it, or how to cut it and what not, maybe i will work with it later on. I was thinking maybe some green tolex or something? idk.

^ Green tolex would be cool if you replaced the red power light with a green LED, and install a green light jewel! Green & black is always a great combination. If you could re-tolex the 1x12 cabinet too, that would be immense

i was thinking the same thing, except purple

i think there are some different colored jems on musicians friend. Would have a SICK look if the tolex and led matched.

Personally i think purple would look teh PEE EYE EMM PEE.

Please round those corners! I can't image the pain of a 35 pound amp corner hitting me in the knee.

I kinda liked the front panel until you cheesehole'd it, too. I was sorta hoping you would've covered the front panel with some cool paint or something but I guess you can still do that.

Well i did that to allow air flow to the amp, it will be covered with grill cloth.
