    Looking good mate.

    Just one thing to point out, it you're planning to use flat fixing for the side panel, as opposed to slide on, I would consider using some metal thread inserts into the wood and using some hex cap bolts to fasten it down.

    Reason being, it looks as though you're using MDF to build this, and MDF just isn't built for repeated removal and re-screwing of screws. It will work fine in the short term, but in the long term, when you make future upgrades or similar, the MDF will begin to deteriorate and it wont hold tight anymore.
