I found a 16x16x8" enclosure here:
http://www.aiconsol.com/snb-3737-bud.html

The website isn't much to look at but I received my order within 2 days of ordering. Came out to ~ $100 with shipping. The nice thing about this box vs. the Pioneer Breaker that everyone seems to use for Kal Clone builds is there is no removable plate to seal up on the top of the box.

Hey Vinyl- does that box meet the NEMA and IP specs that Kal mentions on his site?

According to the manufacturers website, it meets NEMA type 1, 2, 4, 4X and IP65 ratings. From what I can tell, there is a gasket around the door that seals when the door it locked. There is no hole in the top/bottom of the box to seal either.
