Yup, they are not cheap, but i quoted the front/rear aluminum panels vs steal. Without the 10MM front panel and aluminum rear panel, they are $175 for the 400mm, and there's other options you can see on their website.

Par-metal is a less-expensive option, but wasn't able to get a good picture on how the heat-sinks attached to the chassis so I passed on them. They offer different heatsinks, which might be benifical and from the pictures you do see, they look more solid than HiFi's offering for the large chassis.

I did consider using Front Panel Express with Heatsink USA's heatsinks, but the total cost is higher with the FPE panels as each cut is costly. Cutting the vents for the covers greatly increases the cost to where I felt HiFi as a better starting point. I have used them for the rear plates, but nothing a drill press can't solve.

Sure you can scrounge for chassis parts and build something even cheaper or fabricate your own panels, but the investment in tools and time might not be something everyone would want to do.

My initial plan was to build an F5, BA3 and later added AJX, and now I have the F5V3 to toss in the mix ...

Audiosan likely hasn't seen a lot of the Modu front panel insides.

A couple of year ago there was a Conrad group buy and I think the price was around $90 or so for a pair. Doesn't seem bad.

ABOUT HIFI 2000

Matter of taste.
For monoblocks, for instance, you finish with huge empty boxes when all that room in the middle can be used by larger finns heatsinks ending as less tall and more efficient cases.
As for that bottom plate you'll have to rework.
As for thin back plates.
