Many thanks again @REVOCCASES, I have downloaded the DXF and emailed it to my sheet metal worker for a quote.
I may need a front SFX mount as I intend to air cool my CPU.

Thta would be amazing thank you, I will be ordering 2 starter sets later.
That will save shipping for another UK SFFN member who lives fairly close to me.

The good news: Your starter sets are on the way. Hope I remembered to include everything you need. XD

The bad: I didn't check carefully and totally underestimated the shipping weight / cost. UPS almost charged me the same as if I would ship a complete case. So unfortunately I need to adjust shipping fees for coming orders. :confused:

I cannot believe that UPS got the parcel from @REVOCCASES in China to my house in the UK in 2 days!
It was delivered yesterday afternoon at 2pm...amazing!

I had a quick look and it all looks excellent, thank you.
The extrusions are great and well finished, and the fixtures kit looks massively comprehensive...

I also managed to get the second starter kit in the post this morning to SFFN friend

Thank you again for your excellent service and support; it's only the panel cutting that's holding me up

In the starter set - is there anything that can secure the gpu in place? Cannot see it in your pictures. Debating whether to make a second BIG560 that will be slightly bigger besides the one from you ;)

UK DIY is go!

I received these photos from my metalworking contact yesterday saying that he'd finished making me 2 sets of BIG 560 panels in 5251 Alu.

The sides are in 1.6mm sheet and the top & bottom are 2mm.

Top panel (by the look of it*) in 2.0mm sheet

*The bottom panel should have additional holes at the corners to screw the feet into.

And here's the surprise component. My sheet metal guy designed me an alternative rear panel with 92mm fan mount instead of the SFX PSU mount.

For reference, they came out a bit more expensive than his initial quote, but still pretty reasonable at 34 GBP (US$47) a set, which includes the standard and 92mm fan rear panels.
I ordered 2 sets, which should be delivered today - it's staring to get real!
They're unfinished other than some light dressing where the sheets bent in the heat, so I have to deburr and make them smooth.

I'm thinking about powder coating one set, but a friend who is an experienced amateur sprayer says he's always been disappointed by the 'orange peel' texture on all the powder coating he's had done, especially on flat surfaces.

The sheet metal guy also had one last surprise up his sleeve...he's made a 3rd set and will be experimenting with getting a nice surface finish by putting the panels in his big industrial sized rumble polisher.
