Champ amp now in cabinet

I finally completed the Fender Champ project. Though the joinery didn't come out like I'd hoped, it turn out well enough. The front baffle was a sliding lid from the 1969 Magnavox console I stripped a couple of years ago.

If you look at the first picture to the right you might think I was way off on centering my handle. The handle isn't centered on the length of the amp, but on the weight. You can see why in the second photo.

In the third photo you can see the aluminum HVAC tape used for RF shielding, as well as the speaker scews used for mounting. The voltage plate came from the Tektronix ocilloscope I've been stripping.
