Starting a double build this week. I'm building a couple 700 Series II WOPL's. I have been gathering parts for the last week or two. I just have to finish a couple preamps, ship some face plates, drive the wife to the airport in Tucson Thursday, clean my shop, drive to Tucson tomorrow to pick up face plates, Hmmmmm I should be able to start this week... Maybe... Oh, and I have to Gut 2 amps to be able to start the builds, clean all the whale snot off the cooling fins, paint and body work, oh god.............................................

First chassis getting wired. My eyes are crossing, time to call it a night and I'll finish the first one pretty much tomorrow. The other one will start getting wired Wednesday.

This one is about in the history books. I'll have power to her in a couple hours. Greg, I'll send you a copy for your friend.

At 6:02 pm (Zona time) the Sniffer gave birth to a 45 lb baby girl 19" long..... Her name is MIA and she has red eyes.... Sounds like the debil....

She has a temp face plate and handles for the moment and her blood pressure is .357 mv

Not bad, I started building boards on Monday.

It was really 3 days. I did save time by having a chassis stripped already, DCP's in stock, and rebuilt volume pots in my stash, clean heat sinks on the shelf.... Believe me, the next one wont be so quick.

Nice job Perry and as Lee said that was a fast and beautiful build. Have you kept a tally of how many 700s you've WOPL'd?

Have you ever worked on a 400? Just asking for fun.

You guys are funny..... I use the 400's to sit my truck on since I have no blocks..... Navo, only Joe knows how many I have built. I lost track around 60
