Has anyone though about taking it a notch higher and have the faceplate either mirror polished or sprayed with a thin coat of gold.

Gold as a color for DIY chassis will not sell well.

Mirror polish is easy with a palm sander: 400grit, 600 grit, 1000 grit, 2000 grit, then get a polish for aluminum like Semi-Chrome and polish with a rag turning often. Will look fine a year later but if you polish it again it will look even better. Even your fingernails will scratch it though.

I'd say no. But the simplest solution is just have a 5th foot under the transformer. Otherwise The DIY Friendly Base but better if you have washers between the DFB and the bottom of the case where the mounting bolt goes through.

Is there an [updated] anticipated timeframe for when the new chassis will be in-stock? Hope I'm not chomping at the bit here.

I've been chomping too, was going to ask myself in a couple of days. (not trying to be a pain in the butt here, I figure the DIY crew would like to know how much interest there is).

Having just paid the customs / port processing fees (which was more than the duties!), they'll be en route to our LA fulfillment center later today. The fulfillment center normally takes 3-5 business days to get stock available, so I think it's safe to say a week from now. The store will be updated shortly with all the info. Thanks!
