Well, if anyone needs vinyl for their artwork, let me know.

Just bought a cutter last week and have vinyl in 10 different colours.

Still a novice in the software, so if you have vertor files, would be a better job.

Sounds great Danny! Post some pics of stuff you do so we know what it's capable of.

Rule of thumb....

never test the software before the cab is complete, as you will never finish the project.

I have done this in the past, and as a matter of fact, my very first cab is still not finished because I made it playable. Need to finish it one day. Only been 4 years. :)

Very nice Heath. Looks great.
I assume you were unable to get the original CP from the guy who had the machine and had to fabricate the panel itself?

yeah, that was what happened...

it was going to be cheaper to do it myself... plus the original one was THRASHED!!!

just need to buy/fabricate those hinge thingos for the back so the quick release works
