Intel NUC in rack

I just purchased an Intel NUC and put OpenElec on it. I am in love with this little thing. For now I will have only one in my house before a matrix switch to distribute to other zones in the house. This will be in the basement in a rack, and that is what I am asking. I could just get a custom shelf from MA but I've seen some cool faceplates online like:



This is in the UK and really expensive because it's a whole solution. They build the NUC and provide the case and the optional faceplate.

Anyone have anything like that? I won't be using the IR (http control on XBMC instead) and was thinking of just putting it on a shelf with a blank 1U faceplate/space holder. I want to showcase the NUC and possibly add another NUC down the line.

Or I can mount it on the inside of the rack, out of sight...

What have you guys done?

EDIT:

Is there something like this for the NUC?

I see this for many of the Mac Minis
