What he said...

:oops: :oops:
Check out the layout in the instructions, I found them very useful.

One wire attaches to the top right turret, as you stated above. The other connects to the 4th turret from the right, which then connects to the 2 series HT resistors (10k + 8.2k).

I'm pretty sure it doesn't matter what wire is used (the choke is not "directional", like a resistor).

Hope this helps

Hi..in my case I printed the instructions out and numbered them by hand to keep things organized. other than that things look top notch. I'm really looking forward to building and hearing my kit. one more thing, does the kit come with a metropoulos head logo? It is a metro after all and the case looks kind of plain with no badge.

metro kits haven't been available for a long time. I'm assuming you pieced out a "kit" from valvestorm and in that case its not really a Metro kit and shouldn't have a Meto badge on the head shell

Hmm... we worked pretty hard to keep all the parts from the old Metro kits available. We just let folks order the same parts ala carte because a lot of em want to substitute this or that. No we don't sell the logos... they were available for single purchase back in the day, not like you had to buy a kit to get one.

Anyway, if anyone still needs them here are the instructions:
