Topband: Project Boxes for 160 meter Preamplifiers?

After looking through the Mouser catalog at shielded boxes to house my 160
meter preamplifiers, I'm thoroughly befuddled at the bewildering array of
project boxes available, and I can't decide which one is the 'right' one to
buy. Please, some of you topband wizards, point me in the right direction
with a Mouser catalog number for a box suitable for housing a W7IUV or KD9SV
160 meter preamplifier. I'll be using the preamp at the shack end of the
antenna input, so water-proofing isn't required. If I build the W7IUV
version, it will have to be large enough for perf board and point-to-point
wiring, plus I plan to add a power switch, power LED, and a bypass switch
like the ones in the KD9SV design.
