I thought this would be useful for all of you guys who don't know where to start when you receive your kit... so I'll post my build progress here and show all my mistakes for you to learn from. Cheesy
Let me just say... this is my first D style amp build and let me say something... this is not easy. Hats down to all of you guys who already did this... not to mention Nik and his guys which are doing it all the time.  Smiley


First... mount HW and do the heaters (if you are doing it Marshall style), tough job wiring heaters, it helps to do this outside the chassis  first and then move in... I did it the hard way of course  Sad


EDIT: Some of you were asking where those heater wire go... I attached another photo, this one shows all the pins... Wink

2.) Tone stack pots, switches and input jacks... this was very slow process but it was fun (at least for me)

Not bad for my third amp build ever, isn't it...and not to mention my first D style, so I'm quite pleased with the outcome.
I'm taking her to my amp tech tomorrow...we'll power that scope and sine generator and see what this baby can do.

All good things must end at one point.

This thread has been a GREAT help.  I am getting nearer to completing my HRM 100 (my first ever build) and will post pix when done.

Thanks again!
