So, I searched around, and only found 1 or two threads. Not the specific info i'm after though. So here goes: I'm going to put the Trace Elliot V8 into a flight case. I want one where I can pull off the top, and the amp can sit in the base of the case. Before you try and stop me some info would be handy, getting a case made over here will cost me at least $350 so i'm willing to spend some money to make my own. I also have the school holidays coming up (2 weeks, we're in winter here ) so I have some time too. If I need help with any technical info/help (which I shouldn't, as it's a simple case design really) I live next to two engineers. A design and mechanical. So really, my questions are. How should I go about making a rack of that design? Would 3/4" Ply be thick enough? Could it be 1/2" ply and use the stuff that Mesa Road Ready cabs have on the outside (can't think of it..). What should I put in the inside to cusion the amp? Where can I get things like the clips/locks? Any other info would be handy. Thanks!
