Hello all. Just received my Kit. I bought it on ebay from ceriatone-amp. Here is the link for their ebay page: http://myworld.ebay.com/ceriatone-amps?_trksid=p2047675.l2559   .  The amp kit states made by ceriatone.net which is a different website than ceriatone.com.  In short, I am hoping this is a valid ceriatone kit made by Nik.  If someone could advise.   
  I would also like to log my progress through this forum thread so I can both help others and also be advised of any mistakes I've made.  Criticism will gladly be welcomed. I have a very basic knowledge of amps but this is my first full amplifier build so I've been researching all I can regarding anything and everything regarding amps. 
  I have read in some forums regarding the HT 1a Fast-blo fuses have been blowing in some cases and that it's been replaced with 1A slo-blo. And also if the rectifier is diagrammed correctly on the layout.  If anyone has any info and tips of possible problems I need to look out for please respond. 

Thank you all ahead of time.

 I couldn't find a head cabinet for the Stray Cat so I just ordered a Dizzy 30 head cabinet instead from gabkits.com..  The dimensions suited the chassis 19x9x2.5.  I hope I got the right one.

I'm on the home stretch..  ******Note******** Please don't use these photos as a reference.  There are wires that are not hooked up yet and appear to be attached to the wrong points.  It's just the way they came to lay in the chassis.  I will post many reference photos when all is done and working properly.

Stray Cat is done.  Finished it late last night.  I'm just waiting on the head cabinet to be delivered.  I'm editing pics and will load sound files very soon. Grin

Hello Ivan.   Thanks for the interest.  I have a sound clip posted in the Stray Cat Sound Clip thread.  I have to edit my photos to make them smaller for the forum.  I have so many projects going on that I forgot all about doing it.  I will get to it soon.
