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?
#42
Mathamology- I'll be making it today, going to make a peice of wood to fit the front, then cut out the middle for vents, and cover it with grill cloth

They will work just fine for what im doing, plus, theirs no room in the corners because the amp takes up all the room.

EDIT: Haha, yeah after i mount the amp i will place a peice of wood on the sidewall that the amp will "sit" on.


you could still put supports in the bottom two corners ?

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.

round those corners


+1, it'll add to the aesthetic appeal AND no longer be a safety hazard.

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.

yes, instead of tolexing. If it turns out i dont like it, I'll tolex it. But i think i'll like it staind.

Aren't you worried if you bump it around it's gonna really mess up the finish?

gtr - I have another vote.

Put a cut-thru 'see thru' diamond plate mesa/xxx style on front and then run tube lighting or whatever it's called behind it.



I acctually was going to do this, but i cant find any clear ones, and i have no idea how to wire up the light.

That looks pretty cool, man... it's given me an idea so my VK will be useful when I eventually do upgrade.

I bet it feels pretty cool to say you have a 5/8 stack, too.

So you're just gonna stain the head, right?

I remember someone that gutted a V-18 and stained/lighted the head. There wasn't a front grill, and it looked awesome.

I'm sure you could find someone who can help you with the wiring for LED's in the head.
