Finishing of the parts is expensive.

Same thing happens with the Hifi2000 chassis from Italy sold by diyAudio.
One small chassis in stock form, $60. each.

The exact same chassis, with drilling and printing on both front and rear panels, $200. each.
This is what it costs.

You could have the thin, finished plates made, and attach them to plain thicker plates of the same size,
which would be cheap to make at sendcutsend, etc. Steel material laser cuts very cleanly.

Laser cut steel will have very clean and sharp edges, and can be painted, polished, etc.
Cheap to have plain pieces made. There's a total minimum order of about $30, but
you can order several unrelated pieces to make up the total. Lots of materials available.
Free shipping. Great deal if you don't have a metal shop.
