Finally at the point to start posting some pics of my Kal clone build. Hopefully I will be done with it by next week. It has been fun and a long time coming. Here's my new control panel. 16x16x12 Couldn't find a 16x16x8 that I was willing to pay for. Ended up getting this one for about $130 shipped.

Receptacle layout and drilled. The circles are just for reference and not actual size or exact location.

I didn't buy the amp and volt meter at the same time. When I got ready to buy the volt meter, I couldn't find one that matched the amp meter. I will keep looking and I will find and buy one eventually. I also went with the Auberin timer. I had no luck finding the one that Kal used for a reasonable price. And, I like the idea of the components matching. Although, I will now have to try to figure out the wiring for the timer. If anyone has used this one and can provide some assistance it would be much appreciated.

I got matching amp and volt meters from Kal. Just email him on his forums and he can help you out.
