Here's the completed pair.  I went with a lighter green and carmelized bamboo sides.

.... black and gray primer was easier ....

Doc, I need to thank you for the inspiration behind these.  I have built many amps over the last 28+ years, but the first was the original SEX amp.  When the PT blew in one (I recall that was a bit under rated), I stripped them down and built your Afterglow, then added JT's shunt reg and CCS loaded driver.  I sold them years later to finance my EROS, and have wished I still had them.  These are CCS driver 6SF5 loaded, direct coupled 2A3, switchable high/low Ik.  No shunt reg, as the 5AR4 based RCLC supply is so over rated for the application (all the iron I had on hand from never realized other projects, like the 20W James SET OPT's) .... anyway, it's my homage to you and and all that Bottlehead have taught me over the years.  Thanks.
