He's waiting on 2 more bottom heaters so it should be 2000w. But I may of read wrong

You are correct mrshotshd, I'm waiting for another two heaters for the bottom. It will be 2000W. These two which have arrived I ordered before you guys suggested that only 1000W won't be enough. So I ordered another two which still haven't arrived.

@we3dm4n,
So, the blower sucks the air from top and blows it downwards on the heater. And the air goes out around the heater?

Sorry, I didn't see any lighting on the station drawings. I did mean just switchable gooseneck lighting and not software driven.
I'm not surprised that you are getting so many questions. It is a very interesting project and one which a number of us would like to do.

@rotek I talked to you on osPID forum. Remember me? I'd love to chat about a couple things if you get a chance. We could throw ideas back and forth etc. I don't know anyone else that is coding their own controller. :( My controller is now complete. For now anyways haha! Only have to add auto fan/manual fan function then pump function when I make one. :)

Today I have received the parts from laser cutting and bending. I have to say that I expected the bending to be done tighter and more precise, but it'll do. Maybe you can see on one of the photos that one side is not bent completely to 90 degrees. It will need some adjusting. Also, I have intentionally ordered the holes on the top plate to be smaller than actually needed so I can drill them to correct size for threading and countersinking. I've tested the fit for all parts to be mounted in the casing. They all fit perfectly in the cutouts, just as planned.
After I do all the adjustments needed I'll take the casing to the powdercoating (still havent decided for the colour). One thing came to my mind, Is the top plate (around the heaters) also powdercoated on your stations? I guess that the plate gets also hot during the work and I'm worried if the powdercoating will melt and get soft or even burn. What are your experiences with this? I have an idea to take the top plate to black zinc-plating so there won't be any chance of melting or burning the powdercoat.
Here are some photos...
