Raspberry Pi in a new box

Some times I just want things done, on some other occasions I prefer to do it correctly...or at least I try!
 That was what happened to the previous box for my Raspberry Pi, just needed some cover so devised this cheap box:

Now it's time to improve a little bit and place it on a more definite location, this was what I come up to (still going to include a front switch to disable video and power to the small display):

Inside: the Pi with it's power supply (wall unit without terminals) and one to  power the video screen (the transformer, diode rectifier and an LM7812 using as dissipator part of the crystal filter box that I butchered in a previous post.):

Still not sure on the placement of the screen since it would go nice on the front panel, problem is; being a little higher than the box.

The back panel where the magic happens:

Pi Ethernet port, USB ports, video and power out for the screen, power switch and mains entrance. Might include later on the front panel a shutdown button.

The plan for this Raspberry is to have it permanently connect to an SDR dongle doing reception work and then access it via another computer.

Have fun!
