Mine is somewhere in Ohio after being shipped 12/12.  Waiting with baited breath.

I just opened mine and it looks like I got yellow.

Now I see why to keep the layout intact -- you can just cut the plate in half lengthwise and build two bases and then place these next to monoblock amps.

Now I'll have a passive "double smiley" graphic EQ that I always wanted :-)

I was thinking the same, i need a switch box so i'm tempted to cut it into two.  I got a Cyan base with mine..

I received mine today. Another yellow one!  I still plan to change the layout to mount it vertically with the in/ outs on the rear.  I don't see any issue using the plate that came with the kit. I'll post a photo when finished.

Mr. Blackplate,
What is the surprise concerning the layout you referred to in an earlier post?

Anyone have a listening impression yet?

I received mine today too!  It has a most unusual top plate.  It is polycarbonate tread plate!  This will really look cool when I finish. 

BTW, I worked on a mill at Alcoa that made tread plate, now called something else.

That one is from me ;)

@Joel - the surprise is the sticker label, which may not work so well with a vertical layout.

Thank you Paul!  I'll post pictures after the weekend.  I'm back to 40 hours a week.

No, it will look great if it turns out like I hope it will. Thanks!

Mine arrived today - I got the Creamsicle (tm) version too!  We are told to expect debilitating snow here tonight/tomorrow, so I might just have a chance to assemble it!  (or shovel!)  Looking forward to it!
