Default Need chassis case for new amp!!!

Hello

Right now I'm on my bench targeting a 6 channels/50 watts using IGBT transistors with regulators, for future 2 channels tri-amplified active system.
My problem is I have problems trying to find a good chassis case for this project.
I need to have one with already included heat sink.
I'm sure some of you will be able to share information or links about where I could have access to find a site offering this.
I found this one. It's interesting and affordable but I need other suggestion for best choice.
Thanks!

Luke

Shipping is expensive, but really fast (2-3 days DHL).

Try thrift shops for a donor amp chassis. I gutted out an old Fisher CA-283 and netted a nice heatsink and a multi-tapped 90VAC CT transformer which will net me +/- 60V rails and +/- 30 V small sig rails. Also prepunched and mounted I/O (RCA's & Speaker connectors) on the back.

not modushop, although many here have, but ive ordered from the second link vt4c.com , not the chassis but wire and other bits and pieces; excellent teflon tube sockets, some good nos switches etc. all orders have been as expected. ive been eyeing off their chassis, but i dont like cases that have the holes already done and labelled and the ones that dont have this arent suitable for me.

I've bought from both of these vendors in the past (once from AC, many times from MS).
No issues whatsoever.

Can't you take the writing off with a solvent?
