Hi,
I'm new here, referred over from Audiokarma and looking for help. I have a PL400 donor chassis laying here needing love, and I was considering giving it the WOPL treatment. I have a couple of questions if somebody can point me in a good direction to get started:

1. If I do it myself, what's it cost? How many hours involved? I'm pretty handy, but I lack time, so maybe there's a halfway shortcut?
2. If I send it off to somebody else what's it cost? Does anybody on this forum do them?

Any assistance would be much appreciated!

I think me and Lee figured the parts were about the same for a 700/400 @ about $700 with DC protection, back planes, control boards, caps, light board, RCA's, Bridge Rect, Speaker Terminals, New outputs and Sil Pads, new wiring etc..... Labor starts at $20-$40 and hour OR MORE... Add in a round trip in a fedex truck and you'll be into it for about $1500 give or take..... No short cuts OR halfways.... If you only do part of it, you still run the risk of catastrophic failure.

There are a few of us who do them yes... But a donor Chassis??? I hope that includes a transformer... More like a donor AMP...... A chassis won't cut it.
