Nice project!

Doc, let say you want to upgrade the volume pot with a ELMA type (I have the ones from goldpoint in mine Foreplay III) how many k ohms are suited for this kit?

We use a 100K ohm stereo pot. While we are on the subject, some pots and switches have slightly different locations for that little lug that keeps the body from spinning, and sometimes you might need to do just a bit of file work at one side or the other of the stock lug hole in the chassis to allow the index lug of a non-stock pot or switch to fit. IIRC the Goldpoints are like that. Very nice attenuators, well worth with that small bit of extra work. Of course they do cost about 3/4 as much as the Crack kit.

hmmz i know in my cmoy build u could change the gain by changing resitors....seems like that would be the case here as well if someone really wanted this kit opposed to the sex kit

I just ran across the Crack while browsing the links on the MAD site and just had to have it so ordered it right away. This will be my first build and it doesn't seem as overwhelming as most DIYers I've been looking at. Plus, after finishing the body black laquered it will match my Ear+ nicely. This is going to be fun.

EDIT: Where is Bottlehead located? Can't seem to find it anywhere. I don't even know where my amp will be coming from. lol

@Koyaan haha "yet so far away" you aren't kidding.

Does anyone know if it is recommended to paint the aluminum chassis and top of the power supply and, if so, what kind of paint would work? I was thinking maybe car paint.

Take a look at the Gallery at the Bottlehead Forum. Some pretty cool builds to get a bit of inspiration from.
