Finally finished up the bottom part under the start button today and also added the bottom-front panel.

Starting on the side sheet work. Thinking each major section will be on hinges. The last thing I want to do is end up restricting access to the insides so most panels will need to open up.

Did the separator panel today. Was a bit tricky to mount it properly as the left and right chains have to stay electrically insulated. Ended up connecting it with 4 bolted up mounts that all connect to the grounded part of the H frame.

The only colour I wasn't able to get was purple. Which is unfortunate since purple rarity shelves normally contain "feature" items so I have to resolve this.

Combining red and blue strips, facing them to each other and placing them sideways against the perspex seems to work. It's not the most convincing purple but I think compare to the blue shelf it'll definitely stand out.

I'd defintley get actual purple (or RGB) strips if I could find them in 5mm width (or less) but seems that these super narrow strips are not very common so I have to work with what I have.

Would something like this work? Ultra Skinny NeoPixel 1515 LED Strip 4mm wide They're RGB and less than 5mm wide.
Mate ive never seen those before. That's awesome! What I might do is try do my "DIY purple" on one shelf, and see whether it looks acceptable. And if not then Ill grab one of these. Thanks very much, thats very helpful.

Edit: Actually just had another quick browse, looks like there is a new product - a 5mm wide strip that's static purple: US $2.53 29% OFF|DC 12V LED strip 5730 Flexible Light 5mm narrow width strip 5M 60led/m waterproof bright than 5050 5630 2835 LED Diode Tape Lamp|diode tape|led diode tapedc 12v led - AliExpress so I ordered it as it's cheap as. So once this comes in (hopefully wont take 2 months again) ill try this and will see but will look at the RGB ones as my backup plan.
