Check out the Laser Hive : https://www.thelaserhive.com/product/front-panel-conversion/
Ah, I misspoke: I want the big sheet of perforated metal, not the power button/ports panel. Do you think the Laser Hive parts out cases?
You can ask the Laser Hive. The owner operator is great to work with.
I have never found perforated metal with the Apple spec hole size and off-sets. I did however keep looking and one time purchased 5 Power Macs at $ 40 USD each and used parts from them for a number of projects.
And for small areas, you can use a scrap piece of Apple mesh as a pattern and drill your own holes into good quality aluminum plate. The aluminum needs to be hard enough to drill cleanly.
