    Indeed amazingly fast, one almost dares hope it will will one of the few "I'm gonna build this" threads to actually finish. I'm stoked!

    Got the front cover cut & fitted today, and cut out for the bridge and mounted that.
    I've decided to use mini pots on this build; they'll give me many more placement options in the tight quarters. I think the switch is going in the top corner, LP-style.

    Probably won't be building another one; it's just too wacky, but it might make a great man cave or garage piece. And it's a heavy mutha- my 11 lb. rated scale gave me an 'Error' reading.

    It'll go on the rear end cap, between the outlets.

    Primered & put on a base coat of red yesterday; waiting for the metal flake paint to arrive. And the correct size exhaust tips from Summit came today:

    I'm sure the exhaust tips don't substract any weight !
