I believe I would like to pick up one of the metal racks with the adjustable shelves from HD to act as my three tier stand. My question is which one is strong enough to do a 10 gal batch? Is there a certain metal that people recommend?

Ideally I'd like one like this that allows me to adjust shelves on both sides (like the first picture), but I would be okay with the larger second one.

Where did you get the velvet shield?

I got the velvet shield here, but the price has gone up by more than 20 bucks since I got it on September 2. I've also added some aluminum tape arount the top to keep crap from getting behind the insulation and the keg, and I made an insulated mash tun cover out of multiple layers of reflectix.
