Secondly, I know Marshall's commonly use the epoxy board w/turrets and Fenders commonly use paper board with eyelets. I think the epoxy board style is superior. Is it ok to build a Fender clone using a epoxy board rather then paper w/eyelets? I know I can do anything I want but just wondering if their are beliefs that the board relates to the tone?

The doghouse construction method also requires unnecessarily long leads. Keep the caps local as the layout and chassis space allow, and the lead lengths as short as possible. The cover is to keep an unwitting person from reaching into the head or combo while the amp is live and getting a handful of high voltage. There are a number of layouts on this site which are tried and true for the 18W topology.
