    14ga perforated stainless side panels for ventilation, 16ga stainless top/back/bottom with penetrations in the back for power/antenna cables.

    I'm soo jealous.

    Thanks ZA!
    I gotta do something to stiffen up the front. There are no welds up there to hold the front square, so it's easy to twist it out of square.
    The perforated side panels (.25 holes on .375 staggered centers) offer a lot of ventilation, as well as endless component/shelf attachment points.
    The bottom panel is a channel, open on the L/R sides, with 1" bends inward at the bottom front and back. I'll be fabricating 2 stabilizer tubes that can be attached within the channel in case the cabinet gets top heavy.
