You might suspect wiring to be a problem but look at the use of the front  
mic gain pot and the length of wire used there. I was thinking about  actually 
installing the new pot to the bottom below the mini-pot  installed there.  Also 
contemplating gluing a plastic rod to the present  pot and have it extend 
about 1/4 inch or less below the bottom plate. It is not  like we adjust the 
power like the volume. I just figured there have been some  innovative approaches 
attempted (failures and successes) that folks might  like to share
That pot in there now is just such a pain to access and adjust

The only  problem is how you attach the external pot.
I thought a good solution would  be to add a bracket for it under the bail/ 
foot at the front, and bring  the pot out to front panel area that way. 
However, I do not operate at  various powers enough to have prompted me to 
add it that way.  I was  going to use flat cable out the back for the wires. 
One issue was should  they be shielded?   Probably a quick mock up would show 
if there  is RF leakage with longer wires.
