    Very nice.
    Just a thought, and take it with a grain of salt if you wish, why paint the box black?
    I usually paint them up like presents and make them part of the display.
    It just looks like random presents all around the yard and if you paint it black it will be like a heat soak, you already need to displace as much heat as you can in our summers without adding to the problem.

    Well I have started on the enclosures for my Falcon 4-String Differential Receiver Boards. This year I'll have 2 enclosures with 1x12v power supply, 1x differential board, 1x F8 distro. Cases are from Supercheap Auto.

    Still need to add vent and fan...
