I thought CL needed curved cases also, but seeing the case in person, curved aren't needed.

When it comes to 2-4mm thick aluminum, that's the most you can bend it without drastically reducing yields.
Silverstone says for every TJ11 made, they could have produced 4-5 TJ07 cases due to low yields.
That's why the TJ11 price is near $600. Bending and tooling 4mm aluminum isn't cheap. CL cases aren't that thick and the price is already premium.
The problem is scrappage from slipping in the jig,bending consistant radiused corners in Alu is difficult,even with a CNC jig. Ask any TJ07 owner that has tried to get replacement doors,they often don't fit due to the non consistant nature of the case.
I had similar problems getting my PROT07YPE case fabbed,production had a projected scrap rate of 2 in 5 with 5mm Alu.

I had a feeling something was wrong when I saw your package taped like that.

In this situation in the future when something is taped like that, before the delivery person leaves, check the item in front of them and refuse it if any damage. An item that is packed well internally, doesn't need much tape externally.

I remember reading that years ago, as well, that side panels were different from case to case because they're done up for each case after it's bent.

Exactly that J,I had endless debates with my father (42yrs presstool/draughtsman) about this for my case design.
My arguement was that Silverstone do it all the time,my fathers response was "Their scrap guy is making a killing"
I even got to the point of having an extrusion die made up. After CLOS3 IMPACT is finished then I will be going back to that project.

I hope CaseLabs can find a way to offer the gray finish as an option again, because I think it's an awesome color for these cases.
