Lightbulb Vintage Pioneer silver face help needed!

Hello everyone,
I've recently acquired two units. A Pioneer SA-7800 integrated amplifier and a matching Pioneer TX-7800 tuner. Both of the units are in great working condition but their cases are the old nasty simulated wood and are in less than perfect condition. I've been watching videos on youtube and it appears a lot of people don't have this case, in fact they have all metal cases that are black. That got me thinking. How wonderful would it be to have metal cases for my units. So I started to search and search but cannot find anything referencing any type of aftermarket case for these units.

Does anyone know where I can find two metal cases at? Were the units with metal cases only sold in certain regions? Any and all information and help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Steven Z

Just build new cases out of solid walnut better looking then metal ones
or have someone custom make it for you
