I always get a kick out of seeing these old dells revived. Keep it up.

Still deciding what case to go with. Best suggestion so far is something custom with wood paneling om the sides. Unfortunately I am unskilled as a woodworker.

You can get stick on wood grain laminate to cover panels with, just trim to size.
Some of the older Dell cases still look good and lend themselves to modifying also.
